Nonsense Sonnet - Emily Dickinson Edition

October 2014

execturion, identity, enchantment

reverential absorbed attention

hesitation in Faith's syllables

decayed Spring, old desire


small infinity, the test of death

invisible twig and baptized bride

the Hemlocks bow to God

testifying themselves, the trees


nameless need grows illume

sage throat and thick sea

Jupiter, her mystery

the unfrequented flowers force us:


notice me, notice me

a little deity felt feebly,

a crown of centuries delayed,

notice me, notice me
