the white oxen in the shallows
are blindhoofed
wreaking subficial violences on
the pomegranate espaliers
which undersleep your cherished summers.

the summer wethers prance
an unsudden unwickering
of sodden osiers
a countercleftpoint
of diffusion.

spayed bitch casts her bait
and germinates unangelled in oily solitudes
while rosy dangling boy-heels beat
a garden's pulse against the quay.
