Poem by Anthony AW


entrapment spell


Where lies love/ Dove

sta amore / Here lies


— “28” by Lawrence Ferlinghetti


Some feeling of stuff

May I contain you

didn’t say

much. May

I contain

you? My,(love)

May I contain you?

say this in verse:

I wish your curvature

a wish: doesn’t serve((to

contain(s) verse, this form

your lips,)) a square


(that)we shared mattress bed

(in)one night was (lov(e)ingly) clichéd.
