Jasper Number 11 Reads Poem Ancrom

Double Rainbow 

George saw it too
she said   sitting in
lattice-work hose
thick black shoes
at the Riverfront
drumming with her
lithe lucent fingers
tripleting the beat
driving home
a pale orange moon
bobbing above
the lavish oaks
the ball spoke:  tell all
tell all   it invoked
what came next,
the days since then
