Socratic Catalogue

R H Lowe

I lure a file
of literary estate
held in fee –
lines marginally scored –
temporary crossings –
best in class –
pause unfolding out of pregnant pads –
open clause –
labouring towards the elusive point,
all clarity is dash-
Apostrophe, wheres your object out –
Catastrophe –
the hare that failed to split before / after
terms defied
terms defined –
