TERRY OFNER

Body and Thread

Puzzle a way through the body and thread.
Escape? Follow the ghazal, body and thread.

He must be Muzzled, hasn't barked in days.
Digging the field to unearth body and thread?

I stumble in soft earth by the fence.
The place I dug for the body and thread.

I utter unrelated phrases in my sleep, she said.
I go deep. Come up under the body and thread.

I'm stuck in a culvert. The rabbit escaped.
I'll tarry. Starve three days. Pick up the body. Thread.
