Dr. Geppetto, P. Geol.

Wolverine snowshuffles
slow on your track
guessing by geiger counter

How should he know
your doorway shines
on the thirty-fourth
floor
of
downtown
cowtown?

“Women Repaired, Recharged”
the signboard visible
to nine-dimensional woman

II
Your daughters cherish you:
as broken dolls,
we first took in the mountains
from your windows

A glass eye
still
is
fixed
to follow
down your track

and should said geiger counter
crackle crazy power

it is our nuclear spell,
an eyebeam of protection
unraveling the ears
of the wicked wolverine.
