FLING, the Man's Magazine,
June '66.

A whale of a dale away,
an orchard's knowledge shot
four kinds of eyesight higher

her willingnesses

Half a chorus below noon
Poem pterumbled through
the splurged willingnesses

of his expectations.

blueberry guesses
in a shadowy cold field
piss-colored cottages had exhaled
someplace in the remotest reaches
of her preliminary attentions.
Nuns on black bicycles were everywhere.
