Love? Exactement! No?!

Superlative charmed dessicates of iris
& chamomile leaf dull gold doubloons
foundering listless in tide a kiss
jealous of the ear ignoble sweet sweet
lover & stove going out so wry lull
of tongue & groove indolent as smoke
O sputter of candle O sputter of
bee & laudanum the old impassive indignant
real abstinence absentee the jetty veers
skirts the scenic heights perilous as
surf/spirits among comrades tongue
after tongue misshapen by the sea the sea
ravaged at the point of entry a mermaid
& lean cedars by the gate

(In the room awaits)
