Trapezoidal Fish

   
 

To the extent that a woman

   
 
 

curves beautifully intersecting

   
 
 

lines inside and out,

   
   
 

closely cropped scents

   
 
 

easing and ebbing,

   
 
 

becoming in essence

   
   
 

the wellspring

   
 
 

of all this hard

   
 
 

and easy life—

   
   
 

really, to that extent

   
 
 

she's an eyebrow that dips,

   
 
 

a suggestive draw of lips,

   
   
 

a cleft beneath nostrils

   
 
 

or silky part falling

   
 
 

in a mesial way

   
   
 

that strikes the moon

   
 
 

to pudendal advantage,

   
 
 

gluteal furrow—Behold!

   
   
 

under infinitely rising

   
 
 

sundresses undresses

   
 
 

the intercrural trench

   
   
 

bewitching hard sidewalks

   
 
 

of molten sands.

   
 
 

But a person's real

   
   
 

alligator is neither lonely

   
 
 

bosom nor bony trout—

   
 
 

) It's incendiary minds (

   
   
 

I drink from all directions

   
 
 

Like a flashing silver

   
 
 

stiff and stout.
