lion pause

abstract lion paws
conjoin as glyphs
in a chain

pause of a line
a stabbing
in the heart
of heraldry
certainly

a book
must enter
its shelf

jointed letters
pause to claw
and hold
one another

one another

The quality of this place’s stuff is incredible. Just want to say I think you are one of the very best poets I've read.
Thanks.
