Witnesses to unpunished deedsA Poem by hjcm
Some benches have eyes -
their wooden planks,
knots that see
and cradle our recumbent forms.
Chairs have ears
(wing-backed, enfolding our heads
and absorbing conversation)
and doors have noses
to smell your hands
and dwarf your inferior fingers
with a brilliant brass shine
into a firm quantity of flesh.
