Treasure Island

delilah contrapunctal.... yes, that's how I intended to spell it.........


a blind defense


fermented in heat
and
brewed of conscripted bits....
steeped in non-corollaries
bridged
with straw
and spangled haze.....
a smudgepot's
tendrils
boast of crimping...
a limp panache loiters, intentless....
draggling.....
the roofbeam impales the carpenters.....

And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
