Elephant & Castle [18]

The charring
cross-stitch hangs by

bowlight, deep-
water manners ramping

to lowing hounds.
Tottering hams

in the garden, hall-
way culvert put near

the turnpike frog.
Barbs can catch

or island, full well
stocked with mordant tootings.

Rich man ravens
at courtside, kill-burned

vales harrowed
past the puny bridge.
