Poem 39: A tongue listens to a war

In Tongues

Against any significant
chewing for the rest of the day, against swimming,

drinking, to tip standing pools.
To get a hold of myself, contain traces of nuts, put

a sock within an inch of in. Causing
drowsiness, a spring election lasting four

hours or more. Warming. Or else arse
tanning salons or the literary kind, don’t over

or under do it, I have
been known to cause aches, put

the goggles on, if the seal is broken listen
for unusual opinions, frozen pipes, unnecessary

associations, take a light wrap all your candy
home so your parents can eat it first.

For example a) woman walks in the woods

Harry finds himself in lyricism

abridged for heart-stopping, winner
of general antagonist

web of four-time relationships,
at once poignantly dazzled to pithy.

You won’t be able to put down
small Ontario town

in the most unlikely feisty highly, this remarkable
quest for prose style

See attached

such a narrow and rudimentary road, with vulnerable dyke-
doubling of my much larger me

defending a policy that was a corridor

to the nowhere in your promotional materials
did I delay and the lost heavy trucks barrelling down sincerely

like you to indicate that you will be water/wildlife

what really low-interest me
surely the provincial government

last Spring would be facetious

your customer service representative, put in the position of
disingenuous shoreline

I felt sorry for August, obviously a racket
