The Smell Of Leather Seats (A Prequel)

glass-tears-man-ray
Man Ray – Glass Tears (1932)

Peep, peep,
flowerpecker;

Seep, sigh…
voluminous seersucker;

Whirr-whip!
Forgotten incantation
of a honey warbler;

But what’s that…rrrrrip?

Ah! That’s the sound of my skirt;
Rapacious as it is,

Tearing itself to pieces –

Could you do me a favour,
And zip yourself up?
