SPECTACLES

SPECTACLES

(with apologies to e.e. cummings)

 

         five glasses (in pairs)

         perch, totter, straddle, cling

            dominate

         five noses.

 

         grass

         possesses a park

         chasing off transient

         foliage

         conversing with the sun

         in snobbish clorifiltered tongues.

 

         five noses

         surreptitiously taste

         the possessive park lawn's

         particulate expression

         and submit

         amid objections

            with some excusable squirming

         to

         five glasses (in pairs).
