Venus and Organist and Little Dog



Venus and Organist and Little Dog


and venus fly trap and oranges and


litter dog. Vines and ornaments and


light on dust and varnish and ore


and let her down and volcano


and October and long way home


and vigil and oxbow and large


handshake and virgin and orifice


and look over there. And Venus


and I and my little dog vacation


in Oxford Mississippi in a lichen


bog and very carefully I order


vitamins on the living internet


like very carefully an owl orbits


the lascivious fog and I arrange


an orchid in a little glass vase


and Venus is in the orchard and


the little dog is licking my palm.
