Excerpt

Pinhole Man 

 

 

 

At Pinhole Cave, another grotto pun:

 

a crook-backed man with erect penis 

 

scrimshawed haphazardly onto 

 

the side of a thick slab of rib – 

 

the hard bone mammalian armour, 

 

now playfully turned to an après dine 

 

canvas where in thin cartoonish lines 

 

a lone dancer carouses in his mask. 

 

Our liminal Adam, first root and seed, 

 

and all that untimely, unimagined woe 

 

to the woolly, hairy beasts of field.
