Me and Mine

I wrote this after reading Ezra Pound. I'm wondering how much of this imitation is my voice and how much is effective imitation.


Me and Mine 


Flames wrap the skylark assent,

a vertical path to romance.


Its love-punctuation pierces the air,

a squash-ball mating call:


trill-twill, peep, crrrllllll;

declaring a square of wheat its own.
