PROLOGUE

from A Dearth of Prose


Have you sought the rabid stream
dowmstream some eager eye withholds
his symphony in a prologue
where the thickets of a rabid eye
scours out the bridal fare
of some unaware
mushroom,
and tidies up the sacred there
of floating dandelion hair.
Have you sought the peregrine
who swoops up in the oil painting
brushstrokes of blue and yellow fairy things?
I speak a misfit of nonsense
muttering
the drama I am stuttering
a prologue, and an entrance
to sing.
