SCUPPERED......GARROTTED







SCUPPERED


Skein of familiarity.....
Skin-veneered canvas stretched over
Skull, too heavy for upright,
Scales and dips towards nourishing enemy
Schooled that way, the parching....cruel;
Scuppered yet by rotting tide.


Grain of sensibility.....
Grey-splattered lantern hangs inside
Groin, too smoking for alight,
Growls and yelps towards flourishing enemy
Groomed that way, the yearning....cruel;
Garrotted yet by stomping time.
