The Slum Orchestra

Quite a handful! His tongue held in two hands,

hefty and wet,

the red carpet – whiskered and unfurling.

What a moon! The original danseuse,

glob and blanched,

sabre-danced, haunches, paunches purling.

A sweat pirouette! In the slum orchestra,

drab and perfect,

salver spinning – breathless and erring.
