eyeteeth

what take, a guess
your eyes signal something
I am sure I misunderstand (something)

deeply withheld, or lightly held
a joke, a prank maybe
crackling pinwheels, air

confined to the corridors of use
dissatisfaction is endemic
and so they rebel

somewhere in the body
of this dancing dervish this
sometimes lived life

a quiet fever, the curfew
nets a dozen of the little buggers
eyeteeth of our culture
