Goods for Love (poem)

Goods for Love

 

On the midden heap

Above the flood still inundated

If you substituted

Goods for love

Your heart speaking through

Some accident of neurofibre

What chance angle or what play of light refracting

A carbohydrate rush

Acting on your mood

 

They iridesce and their rims

Have a soft opacity

Here are seven arrayed together

Glass behind glass

Strung like beads

 

Your head is in the oven

With the bread and cakes

Irons and implements

Teacups and plates

 

Trade and commerce

Turn the wheels and the wheels

Might cease to turn

The things

And the things for the things

The circlings back

Distract us from the search
