poem || Jeff Harrison

Dormant Primroses, Herds of Clues, Fun with Dew

fidget your signature with
dormant primroses
ramshackle claptraps are
keys to a thousand years

local sunburns, gift of the gab
fidget your signature with
nice people, fidget it
without civilization

fidget your signature,
nice people without civilization,
unsubdued as clues are unsubdued
awash in dew, in beastliness, alert to detonation
& the next thousand years, the letter,
the celebrated malice -- comrade! savagery
gives you its word, a few hours of deduction
amorous & badgered, its brain a
corner of propriety
