I Say by Jonathan Regier

After Beverley Bie Brahic's Heads I

I say,
-------Periwinkle is beset by fraud--
-------On the other hand,
-------Having never known abstinence with itself,
-------Is limpid and warm.

I say,
-------Gold is a very pretty metal,
-------And I never saw one without feathers
-------Colored so. A moth is of itself
-------A feather of one, and thereby burns
-------Less so, Praise God, than the bird of the sun.
