sentiments

Clinical Thermometer Set with Moonstone

BY ALICE NOTLEY

I don’t have any sentiments
would somebodything thirst my quench
how about
about my mediocrity of character? I dance
with the dead divinely
                                 in my dreams
I’m stricken deaf when I mention it my babies
cry they want everything quick! here. un-
mentioned   
                  as character should be
      like the purpurine it needs must be carved in,   
                        please
Have you heard of the roguess elephant with the   
brilliant diamond eyes? She is the puppet
of the dictionary
                           where is her beautiful orange   
juice?   
            puppy foot!      
                                 When your father dies
he doesn’t let you swoon   
                                       into aventurine or spray   
of lily (pearls) of the valley
you do not bifurcate
                               you may
supplicate      
                   play yourself to your camp heroine   
self—play it Lady play
It      
       but delete no matter
       thank you for breakfast
       today we will visit with the ear syringe   
       be the current density      
                                           honey flower
                                           ice egg
I love you as a fan loves air. oops it’s I
                vice-versa I
                                  told you about that
       character         
                           She is a bezel
                           awaiting the plop of a   
                           ruby she must grow   
                           chronically
and I can’t end and I can’t lie
here            
               He held him in his own heart then   
               may I in my eye now me
