Mark DuCharme: Spell

Spring '08 TOC

Making worlds as ever, ratchet
Up this word, our
Taken, to spin
Ever as oleander
                   Imbricate of grackle
Lest this house this
Flare up in a tizzy
                   Of stray mad
                   Counting wor(l)ds
O world, which is not
Mistaken for less
Than its weight
                   Or mistakes, give us
To end this stray rushing
Mad mistake
In receipt of grave housefires
                   Madding ends
From which any fool but ourselves could awake
