Very well written analysis of An afternoon nap by Arthur Yap!
An afternoon nap

is at it again. proclaming her goodness

in a manner apt for the most strenuous p.e. ploy.
swift are all her contorted movements,
ape for every need; no soft gradient
of a consonant-vowel figure, she lumbers
& shrieks, a hit for every 2 notes missed.
his tears are dear. each monday,
wednesday, friday, miss low & madam lim

is at it again. proclaming his bewilderment
he yells at her. shouting out her wrongs, with tears
