She finds I more entrapped
in amber, on her shelf among her novels.
Trophy books of sappy learning,
enforce, preserve, her want of faith.

Smooth to the touch
each spine unbroken
relents it's place
upon her shelf.

Rests for coffee
upon the table,
unknown, it listens,

to committee exchanges, reportage,
repartee, lapsang souchong,
agree with me, brittle built

petty needs

Polish them bloody, validate,
menstruate, incorporate, repatriate,
but don't piss take.

The dictionary laughs to learn
that henceforth, clipped speech
shall be known as Clition.
