The Ecphorizer

This Moment & One for All - two poems
Sheryl L. Nelms

Issue #38 (October 1984)


this moment
one for all
is a
perfectly
ripe

strawberry

that I dip
in plexiglass

to preserve
tonight's full
moon leers
down

pulls the puppet

strings
connecting me
to those first

land lizards

that crawled out
to put
us on top
