Dear Prospect

3.   The world is not a vampire.
1.   Neither a cosmic toolbox.
4.   It’s a molten dewdrop
1.   That wanted to be a slinky.
5.   But without rust or limitation.
9.   I conclude; however
2.   My tongue shakes loose. . .
6.   Nature is hard at work,
5.   Signaling Earthquakes;
3.   The flowers keep booming
5.   Their song for spring: Oh Blessed
8.   Moss’d Bosom, round and round
9.   Is your paradox. The illness worsens
7.   But I am as happy as anyone
9.   Who has learned to skip stones
3.   Across a lake . . .
