Your Project Deserves Good Words

Bevel of A Bell

I have this journal

where I write down words and phrases

in hopes to sneak them into poems.

Words like: chicory, pine nuts, wind-blown.

But now, with no poetry in sight,

I am left with what looks like

mad-man recipes and dream receipts,

and I cannot begin to tell you

how many times I have written

"the bevel of a bell"

to no avail.
