    Between Walls

    Women lost in veils
    Artists undone in ink
    And wells respond to

    armies of peace.


    This was biting scarred.
    That is sneezing gooed.

    He was water cannon.
    She is globe hiccup.

    Fever was cold wet.
    Mercury is hairy steely.

    Eyes are on days.
    Farts are at night.

    Old cash is growing.
    New days are over.
