The Commas // 7














Pale deserter, reaching as if you skipped

___onto Charing Cross Road__wearing a duck’s nose,
with a deported conjunction in your loafers.
there is an establishment near Trafalgar Square where
promises of your reprimand gather
___________________________tones pitching lament
its like I lost all the ____ I never set my hands upon
washed-up partition city-dressed rose bouquets
__________________fold where skin grips vice alarms
