‘what have you done’

dullards at the Captain’s table


a jump ahead

good Jewish friends

a good cigar


maybe both

on a straw mat


light blue, dark blue

colorless sexless pair


fatal ruby network someday

dilating and wincing

peeping and snatching


her feelings were hurt again

insect, fish, flower, bird

such swine


as if Mary

other shadows, folds

savage, unkempt


locked and double locked

‘my Greta’

perhaps horseflies


in love with her again

not even in his own house

as a matter of course


the science among the three

love me

Elsa on the divan


separate as silkworms

like bluejays

from all the seas
