dactylis

shame

shame                i want
to enrich             your synopsis
your thin             vocabulary
oust                    the arthritic 
stab from      your slim dactyl
i want                  to strip you
of your muffled diction
that ark-sway between
          veiled and willing.
shame, i have no       reason
to keep these            distances
intact; this disguised
                  amplification. shame,
i keep you                    malleable
                               without cause
complaint                         or claim
