...own the dam gross-bellied frogs were cocked
On sods; their loose necks pulsed like sails. Some hopped:
The slap and plop were obscene threats. Some sat
Poised like mud grenades, their blunt heads farting.
I sickened, turned, and ran. The great slime kings
Were gathered there for vengeance and I knew
That if I dipped my hand the spawn would clutch it....Read More

Now since down I lay, void of love & ruth,
I'd howl my knowings, only there's the earth

...Plop, plop. The lobster toppled in the pot,
fulfilling, dislike man, his destiny,
glowing fire-red,
succulent, and on the whole becoming what

PLOP...
What's that?
A rectangular piece of canvas dropped from the air
 into the crows nest.
The canvas
 was some kind of woman!
It struck me this madame who came from the sky
 would never understand
 our seamen's talk and ways.
I got right down and kissed her hand,
 and making like a poet, I cried:

in spots of light at the unruffled night. Twinkle, jab, 
snap, that means
a new play; and over the way: plop, drop, quiver, is 
the sidelong
sliver of a watchmaker's sign with its length on another street.
A gigantic mug of beer effervesces to the atmosphere over a tall 
building,
but the sky is high and has her own stars, why should she heed ours?
I leave the city with speed. Wheels 
whirl to take me back to my trees
and my quietness. The breeze w...Read More

  with suggestive slurp

  the swallowed wallowing

Into the jungle. It is all grey
But green on top
Only sometimes when a tree has fallen

A frog jumps in:.

A frog is jumping into
The water, and splash.

and the man's sabots beat an accompaniment: "Plop! trop!

out there,
but it was lonely here in the big room. The little boy 
gulped at a tear.

It was ***** how dull all his toys were. They were so

Nothing was still in the square. If he took his eyes

it had changed. The milkma...Read More
