Four and Twenty of the Week, July 27

Diner Mouse

Spine arched, paws cupped,
claws curled, mind manic,
with hoary, oiled fur; with appetite
it pilfers the odd orange seed.

    Never enjoyed a description of a mouse so much as in those first two lines, the noun+adj formula worked so well — but most of all I love the oddness, the whimsicalness, expressed in him going for “the odd orange seed.” Sticks in my mind for a time disproportionate to its length.
