Burn Before Reading

or eating
the plums.

or riding in the wheelbarrow.
or carrying a heart.
or taking any road.
or wandering with clouds
(or Captains, or ravens, nevermore.)
or comparing summer
(or roses)
or anything brillig, slithy, uffish,
or walking in beauty
or death or dreams
………………..or luck.

Beware: this poem
(tender button, caged bird
song of myself),
is a mess
-age that will
now self
