A geyser in all his sneering glory
greenly signified, his greying gingerly

The reneged grin
The sign or ring
The syringe

In sung elegy and sorry, her rosy lyings

sere
nylon
orgy:

those gristled girls

She lays against his egg linen

in a field of rye

He is ginseng sly

Answer “yes” or “no” to this leggy sinner

resin rinsed from a siren’s hair

Let’s gorge and linger in our error songs

green and gingery, legs and reins, grins and sighs
