Dummy

  by Ben Doller
 

  Isn’t it dumb
  to write a

  letter
  at a time.

  The noisy
  dummy says

  nothing funny.
  The assembly

  doubles up.
  The drummer

  drops her
  dead gum.

  Isn’t it dumb 
  to say that

  one is an
  atomic

  fact. The hand
  of a man

  mum in
  a maw only

  the curtain
  conducts.
 

    Mantis 11
