Motion Dazzle

"I feel rich when I'm writing."~DH

The carnivores inside us
Are familiar with this sort
Of frustration: the gorgeous
Movement that cannot be gauged,
Mind, the zebra fleeing claws
In a headache-inducing
Profusion of zig-zag feints,

Words advertising themselves
In gaudy calligraphic
Patterns, Chinese, Arabic,
Hieroglyphic, Linear B,
Gothic thorns, even someone
Else's Latinate English,
Taunting us: write us! Write us!
