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 † †
