Elephant & Castle [13]

Don wimple and
cue hobo: icing

on the stammered brook.
Huckster or don’t be

nodding.  The hill-gate’s
hanging by a stove.

Convert garden to
chisel, park

cannons in the
greenchute path.

Elephant & Castle [14]

Can singing turn
the south gate inward?  Can

water dart
through the delving

road?  The cock fosters
toothing, the red bridge

spans the bow-split
well.  Nor feeling

fills the richer mound.
I minister

sod to the barrow, half-
rising, half in stone.
