Like the little girl in the fairy tale
I get wrong-ways of a witch.

Frogs and snails
fly from my mouth,
stirred in a serpent’s brew,
anger the spoon.

Words, those erstwhile pearls
grown tawdry, become wild
flashers, serrate the air,
whistling their dark way South.

Without the least regret,
I ache to taste the profane.

Mary Bast, Eeek Love
