A Year in Sherlocku

Robert Perret


the snow lies heavy
upon but one window sill
cold hearth cries cold blood


the fresh cut bouquet
conceals a hard diamond heart
as does the lady


the problem with sand
is that it gets everywhere
even to the truth


harvest apple pie
a sour secret message
for the rotten man
