Carp in the cut.
five, long, as big as pigs
rolling down by limehouse way,
round in the tum like a tub,
in boiled broth, grey-green as
lukewarm bathwater, trolleys and all,
keen in the virile chase.
four males I’d say, if a gambler,
not near caught, snagged or poached,
fat shadows over roach and trash,
stalked with a fly, by, the bullish boars
would roar if they could, over traffic, by commerical.
