Electric elastic
Plunking
The neck bone,
Spastic
As skin dust,
Ripe
As a kumquat,
A giddiness
Jazzing.

The kind
Of smile
You only
Really ever see
From a bride
In a furniture shop
By the
Nursery section.

Chattering
Spine jolts
Increasingly
Sweet slapped,
Melting
Like ice caps,
Sprung
Like a mattress,
A miniature
Earthquake,
Blinded
By lights.
