Fornication devil-wheel
atop a carved wooden Chinese box
opium scented
dried poppy within
hempen rope
a silken scarf given to self from mother as a token of remembrance
then the straight razor
ivory handled
Dr. Parnassus’ Tonic
alcohol dominated witch’s brew of ingredients deemed medical topped with mint
everything
one
needs
for
a
seduction
spin the wheel
clicking
clacking
between the cock and dragon
chiming
into
the rabbit
what Thoreau was really doing
not paying his taxes
at Walden Pond
