Benque Tikal and Anonymous Alice












Maggots, and all things that a blackbird wants
-Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton




if blood and custard
comingle in the nonsense
breadth

a green bull's heart
would spell no death

anonymous
the cherimoyan gem
facets
the grinning loop stall
fen

and if the hydraulics
of custard
should work
the limbs

then the jeweler's craft
is skin
a soft bullstone emerald
enlists a copium
to a hollow gall pursue
its wings of lace
perused by all

a green bull's heart
with the tincture of Tingitidae
feeding from the pith
of its inner walls

gall gem at root
a cavalier cluster
a tidy tingle
FIAT JUSTITIA
(just grab and bake)

alchemy is all
alike itself

hummocks
and "Ssoffar"
