Sparks

my poetry has failed me   † †
its insufficient † †
arrangements of alphabet † † † † †  
stumble over their own serifs † † † † †  
lisping sís and stuttering lís † † † † †
o that every star were a letter † † † † †
with which to write † † † † †  
the constellations in my heart † † † † †  
and †words were weightless † † † † †
feathered †things † † † † †
unfettered by the gravity † † †  
of innuendo † † † †
the incapacities of misjudgment † † † † †  
I would sing for you † † † † †
in the language † † † † †
of a warmest blood † † † † †
my gentlest lark † † † †  
these incomplete sentences † † † †  
left behind us showered † † † †
dim as arcing sparks † † † †
