The Minimal Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


I study the lives on a leaf the littleA
Sleepers numb nudgers in cold dimensionsB
Beetles in caves newts stone deaf fishesC
Lice tethered to long limp subterranean weedsD
Squirmers in bogsE
And bacterial creepersE
Wriggling through woundsE
Like elvers in pondsE
Their wan mouths kissing the warm suturesE
Cleaning and caressingF
Creeping and healingF
