Tell me fast: Will a sestina
break a picket line or even
end an even fast, star a skyline? Will
I break a sestina
open, taste a sestina, even with breakfast?
Will I swallow a line
from a seven-line sestina? Will even
a fast break
in a coffee break line jot a fast sestina?
Or even a will?
I will break even. I line my coffin with
a sestina fast.
I will not stand for an unemployment
line. A lousy break.
I have no use for a sestina. Riskless,
I even the odds fast.
