Questions Of Leap Frog - Poem by Douglas Scotney

When you
read 'Questions of Travel',
were you first
entranced by language?

By 202
out of 515
did you
think this is two
novels in one
and there will be no twining?

Did you
get bored with Laura
and leap frog her for Ravi
till you
got bored
and leapt frogged him?
frog leapt?

Were you then
re-entranced by language?
