Frank Poems: CON BRIO

Men for the car
A castle for beards
A bud for Billy
A god for Boris
A bar for the bride
A rose for the ear
Spades for the queen
A pin for H.M.
An egg for Eugene
Turns for the crew
A loo for Lu
A moor for the lamb
A ram for the day
A car for the don
A tour for Dot
Love for Ellie
Jack for the bin
A loss for Mac
Staff for the fall
Under for Orpheus
Pearls for the fish
Dutch for the flying
A fan for the fox
Aim for the lab
A mack for the lady
Oranges for love
A grin for the low
A dam for the gutter
Butter for madam
A fig for marriage
A flue for the magic
Sing for the master
Dough for the merry
Ditto for Mick
China for Nick
An O for the oath
A rake for the pro
Rhymes for Peter
Ants for the pirates
An opera for Penny
A daughter for Reggie
Juliette for Rome
Gore for the ruddy
A son for Sam
Midday for the semi
Vespers for Cecil
Ring for the cycle
A dream for the summer
An I for an E
A cosy for tea
Force for the tinny
Peace for war
A hat for the wife
Tell William
A car for the men.

Amen for Carmen.


"House by the Railroad," Edward Hopper, 1925
