My Anatomy Screams, "Fie!"
Pat_Smear

balls in the sack
 1
squashed between
 2
oak and ivory
 3
 
 
i cordially invite
 4
all interested parties
 5
to concoct a con's cock,
 6
and shun the ones
 7
who suggest otherwise
 8
 
 
i'll whip out a little jig
 9
a diddy of sorts
 10
so to speak
 11
sans interesting, literate,
 12
or even intelligible narrative
 13
 
 
all because my rocky mtns
 14
have collapsed
 15
under the anonymity
 16
of dead elephant's toe-nails,
 17
and the slaughter of brown bloody timber

your poem has sharp teeth. I'm very impressed with the ferocious non-sense barely contained in the final strophe. If you're going French, more than one preposition would sit well. I can't stop cringing before elephant's toe-nails. Now my thoughts turn (inevitably) to John Merrick.

Thank you for this.

Oh man!  The imagery is so good I see this happening as well as feel it.  This has pain written all over--in a good writers way I may add.
