Opium Tiger

Choki Pierre
The Newsletter
deaf and dumb to the use
of those who hear and who speak
is an attempt to Denis Diderot
published anonymously in 1751

plot tenure
open ground
is a pretty
dead word
and the mother sphere
not THE
but the
and THE

you might as well recognize
Paul Ranson's sadness
or jealousy
the primitive bird
an early roadrunner perhaps
holding a lone maple leaf
by an extended stem
in the pattern of her dress

Irises and Rhododendrons move closer
to the edge of the pond something
literal readable a woman
reading by lamplight looking
at cabalistic signs another
example of summer in the village

la perception enfantine
is somehow like Klute
being nudged into Sky Fye
