the lady’s most unbecoming…

by Judith Huang

This day’s delirious declaration

of the never-never blue; the expense of

jubilation, and the most

irrepressibly You – This must be

heaven’s exclamation, to-

day’s the Day I’m pro-

Creation; if you carpe

I’d be diem – all my fortunes

I’d lay open! This much beauty’s

Exhortation – the final

damning of all rhyme and reason;

Behold: the day is Mort.
