Blue Butcher Orchid

for Miss Jane's birthday

Inking the fingers
dialect and echo
Blue Butcher of tongue
peeled from its industry
          from roof of mouth
to reluctant curls
turned slightly left, new
        implication in Orchis
sepal to petal
cupped calyx, funnelled
modified into a lip

A Thought

wide as lightning
bodies of the lovers
skin sloughed off
and still rubbing
