Words & Syntax

obverse and reverse
inverse and converse
add perverse to get the picture
of the human remnant
forming in the interstices
of the words and the syntax
I've been in love with forever
or so it seems, possibly
only almost that long
since Booth entered heaven
with his big bass drum
boom, boom, boom,
"Are you washed in the ink
of the word," he might have said
but didn't, other things
on his mind, in there too
I've joined the chorus and
I keep on singing,
not what my daughters, or others
would kindly call it, oh no,
I've been Vachel Lindsey'd again
Ooooh, baby! I keep singing!
