poems || Jeff Harrison

The Birth Of Liquid Desires

behind eyes all sharp myriads
Herr Bibliothekarius
ciphery & unashamed
tells himself
he is an insect poet
ciphery & unashamed
hidden dainty from storm

his story's axe men
ciphery & unashamed
overstay their welcome

his tale's rose,
antique and
is everywhere
ciphery & unashamed
tho no mask for his cries
ciphery & unashamed:

"the axe men they're my above in name
and wearing shapes I paused when
still resistless newborns, yet the unimagined
is scanty and is of seraphs dry"
