Oulipost #20: Lescurean Permutation [Plain]

Through forest-clenched winters,
along roiling streets and
urban rivers
toward
whatever
dragons
understanding
crimes and
complicated clones
may help
reveal.

I imagined the
fine stags
tenderly strung
with
jewelry
shells and
tiny teeth
charming family
friends
and
loved years
12,000 ones
before
more modern pyramids
built
the great people
in Egypt.
