so i got myself pot posted weather hitched 
sharing their raise wear prattle 
wine and knotty pine barbed wire s
she rode horses untangled by wind 
sagittarians for breakfast 
with which she hid 
burnished night 
gem sack cloth 
slipping the noose 
to get away 
from it all 
washing up 
ashore in a tempest 
and teapot store 

there are sliced oranges 
fanned out on china plates 
interspersed with grapes

has got in store

a moment is daring enough 
to pay attention to why 

they don't shoot mockingbirds 
     who only ever sing 
    
    ridden certainties 

            are the written tongues  

         of a man's soul 

what he beg s for 

from every what 
in this universe 
he will forever be   
never quite 
quiet with 
or assured by 
once caught
