Toe, Knee, Shoulder, Head.


Toe, knee, shoulder, head.

Up a ravaged gutter of copper and lead


East echoing wind of string and brass

a shrieking tune on the broken glass


Cold hammer cracks a crumbly gall

Disturbing the bird nest disco ball


No place to dine a lonely dove

But one to dervish, liquid love


Loose sticky shuffle, dried ocean regrets,

A working boot licks a lifetime of steps


For youth of greed, the plague of age.

A looming debt to the heavens wage.


Sow final seeds in the flower bed.

First toe, knee, shoulder, then head.
