Open 2021 Poems - Steve Lang



By Steve Lang

Little angel
With your diamond crown
Bridal veil
Pink slippers lurid
Adder’s mouth
All wanton inflorescence
Labellum swollen fused
In vanilla inner whorl
I will melt you will cry
And down among the coral-roots
Between the leopards and the swans
The mirrors scorpions jewels and ghosts
Our column conjoins our clade
