The Spell

To see my Gods
                                   to charm
                                   their nudity
with
a word
              I assume
                                   a buck's
                                   sleek neck
              steal
                                   a quail's
                                   small mouth

From The Fountain, 1992, North Carolina Wesleyan College Press.
