Spell, Bound

Come, sit a spell
in the citadel and
help me coral (core all) my
-bulls. Dey got
sharp horns
(and harps, shorn)
and dey songs is harm,
-(s)izing up all this strange.

You got a pair, a graph
dat might outline all dis
appointment? You got
a sigh-cology
we might share? Sit
right over der, we be
wit you in a month oh
sumdays or two.

Hey. You
wan count to ten? (I sea.)
You wan marry land?

Jus’ come on down to
connect de cut, and
pen syl’s veins, ya.

We state de truce.

Inspired by an incredibly creative and fun prompt by Gillena over at Toads.

    The prompt was perfect for your style. Your mastery of word play is wonderfully showcased here.

    This made for a fun read, De. I can ‘feel’ the fun you had in writing it. I believe that Pierott’s technique could be made ‘riddle fodder.’
