A Poem by Heller Levinson

uprise               zenith stealth                stilt wagon
                        lurch riddle
                       Agastache cheeks
pointing indicative thrust push/pull toward perpetual portend
perspensation precipitation the perpendicular provides the
isosceles triangle urban punctuation erotic gender switchbacks
merrily morning glories
vertical    horticultural    strategical heretical       remote demote
reinforce pushup reinstate
holidays ://: gunshot          spurious ://: ramrod     counterfeit
enables law enforcement the bones make no bears about it
broadside barely bareback       a mark a jot a hand up a holdup
upright bass mast baton flagpoles candles headstones
to flat
