Like That Of Hudibras

O CLOCK

A cock,
a doodle,
of jaunty duration—

The tyranny of is
lisps ukases
in an orotund sacristy,
assumes
the travesty of vestment—

The muscle of tock
marks time
ticking off its dooms
each second a collapsed cathedral
in a sack,
a baroque piglet
in a pulse of velvet, squealing
zeros
as it drowns in the blue whine
of blood,
the flesh fissures’ tremolo—

A sock,
a doll,
a living doll,
of her.

  1. The wheels of the clock
    are tearing out the hair of my head.
    See, I am bald.
