A Poem: Five Ways to Love Thee 

1.

Tucked in the wainscoting,

hidden from view, I clap my hind legs

and chirrup your name.

2.

Disguised as a breeze,

I ride the sunlight to your bedroom

and dance on your breast.

3.

Later, when your eyelids

tremble, I slip my wire skins

and plug into your dreams.

4.

Silently I join

the grackles on the telephone line

and watch you undress.

5.

Hey! Down here! Hopping

to the furry whorl, it's me!

The little black flea!
