Imagist Poem

Are we supposed to write an Imagist poem? I certainly can't remember, so I'll be cautious and just do it.

Looks like a devil.
is one.
mud-colored robe with
matted fur.
has fur.
He is a devil
and the robe is
just mud.
no robe. at all.
The devils eyes open
just enough to see,
but are covered with
lashes.
Everything about
the devil is
light brown.
And he sits
next to
a lady with
white fur.
and those strange, wrapping
braids.
and the
eyes never touch.
