The Impossible Machine
A Few Short Love Poems
Inspired in part from what little I've read
of Sappho (and not in Greek).


AN ENIGMAN

A man practices poison
when she sleeps
when she wakes
he poisons his poison
--E. Terrapin / N. Coppedge


LOVER

Some roses make me sick
some roses make me mad
and some roses will remind me of death
but what is a lover except a rose?
