#17 from 4Play

In the seven woods, what wood
could serve the campfire’s cough?
A word?
Docile, are they not?

Would truly miss
a new language... At the ballpark not watching the game
but the lumber swung like axes through the air
topples each in turn.

Oh most powerful connective!
Lubrication unleashing
a tool that intensifies

the body’s unbuttoned belief systems—
used to dress so very neatly.
But now they are undone, secreting
the understanding of oceansides.
