Cat and Dog Converse
Did you see that?
Dark matter, little blips of it
showering like gravity.
Pretty, really, in a waterfallish way.
Sorry, my ears were too alert; I can hear the stalking of black wolves out near the corner of the canvas. The falling caltrops may get them, but it’s best to be prepared to push the bottle; capture them like masted ships.
I haven’t got the grip;
tiny feet on this scratch-scratch table
polished to reflect the sky,
the fundamental swallows first wave.
