Richard Watt


in the prefecture
mark my wild return:
a prismatic fellow,
children call me spring-heel,
padding softly
like a fall into a well
of old mouse bones.

Vines under foot
keep me sheriff ’d.
No knives or horns
under my hat, as I follow
fifteen feet behind and to the side,
a hook, adhesive mister –
I only hope you know
where I am going.
