Song for the first, when first conceived (of)
Sing yourself from the choirs
Of the unsung. Who can sing
Of you? Gigantic as an apple seed,
the first lullaby burning on the bush.
Sic your dogs on my dreams.
They are not so bad
baring each enamel, darling,
in the context of your infinitesimal
eye-socket or your arms like February
(oh fronds of lash-small fingers!).
It is a pleasure to be effaced by you,
puny cupid, piercing my overgrown heart
I’ll be fat as a birthday balloon for you
or an inverse Penelope spinning myself into your cocoon.
