to the deep crimson udders
which held themselves aloft
using specially modified sucker paps
to attach to the glass platters
where the luminous repasts were kept

into their wetnurse cutpurse research facilities

of blue mandrill assed skin mandalas

whose sheddu may not tel

will be trapped and clamped
in windows
their modified paps
struggling to the heavy sill
