New Poetry: Wittenberg by Kieran Wyatt

Fevers of the Mind

I don’t believe him
he will uv known girls
in wittenberg
can see them clearly in my head
pearly white teeth
straight too
everything about them is straight
they take
confident strides
about campus
smart as anything
well-read, intelligent
wittenberg girls know what to say
I realise, I haven’t said anything
in a while, so
I tug at Hamlet’s tunic
pull him in for a snog
he keeps his eyes open
I release him
the rest is silence
