In Filling Out the Form

ISSUE:  Summer 2006

A triple dactyl for John Hollander

Dazzle me fascinate:
Practically nobody
Does so in triplicate
Verse anymore—

Not a surprise and yet
I’d’ve thought somebody’d
Keep it in store.

Now is the time to let
Mystery complicate
History, Mister, or
What’s a poem for?
