After all,

fussy words are useless
to morsel-seeking mutts
of lapping tongue,
of crazy joy,
of more & more
out-of-the-oven love,-
but you,-

you already know this.


for Real Toads after Pablo Neruda’s
“Sweetness, Always” poem

    (And even though ‘fuzzy’ words would not be good, ‘fussy’ ones are even worse – she said, fussily.)

  2. I wish you could see my face and ritual when I read a poem like this.
    Read once through – think of my dog Macy
    Read the comments – oops – metaphor!
    Read second time through – a wry smile lifts at the left corner
    I’m slower than most, but always find a way to get there 🙂
