In the Woods

April 27, 2012

woods behind woods
bush below bush
further in red
fruit: mull and dew
berries. birds. be
hind are monsters.
in a clearing
animal stuff
clotted with but
terflies. a thin
green snake orbits
a twig. beside
it, empty, its
ghostself, compleat.

Beyond the woods
light fear mother
forgotten, no
sour beery
smells no jolly
talk or whisker
kisses, only
peppery goodness
in the cold light.
