Frances Jaffer

entitled as a mode a
method of speaking nurtured and unknown
not necessarily smiles
and devious devious beyond the dancing
wicked child delighted to smoke you out

in and from the bat house
mammals after all radar bright eyes
insect destroyers

insects molluscs sharks sweet otters
africa undercolored sandy green
pig-shaped deer soon to be
a major motion picture

a fence is enough
lean those spacey boards
might be a delight
