PC Harper
On a Friday night
Eating old el Paso
Fajitas and watching
Spiderman Homecoming on
Sky Movies curled up
on an L shaped couch
with his new wife
who is wearing woolly socks
and resting her head
in his armpit deferentially

 Print able territory rites
by the crown scepter
pushed out mouth pieced
spite in cow red tong
half-lite finds you as
 rosette pattern in latte
art poured through a
metal cut-out image
resembling land-grant
university the prospects of
which you love and shroud
in slight foam which still
does not reach the tethered
hide end left out to
mow in sheered cabinets
but tell us what you think anyhow

 In archaic to beguile the
time now & again a dictionary
or some other book would be thrown
from the circumference & the tramping
boots of the bigger boys who can leap
hop, fight, dance, play cricket, 
fish, swim, shoot,
play tennis, skate or fight 
   any man in Europe
                  it is natural & English-
bearing always as insignia of
office blood
    in full regalia wide
collars falling to shoulders 
            and terminating
in large frilled caps
made of horsehair bulging
                 out air cushions
  or sticking up whale bone pinnacles,
     pantaloons of glaring colours
make young blood prick
& old blood warm
           of crown down again
in tingle from the rod and
rub & rub & rub & rub
the stripes that throb &
    burn adorned surrounded
by a moat half crept reeds strawberry
beds and cream by the
trembling culprit stands upon
the raised dais
     in front of the court,
the field, the school
room but dormitory plucks indomitable
resolution in full play amusement of the
biggest boys in all the right company
who blush and grin
as the rod stirs the best bottle
 of champagne law
