Writers are a less dangerous version of the career criminal. Everywhere they go, they see the potential for the perfect crime. The difference is that writers have better self control.


From behind
I thought for a moment
It was him

What would I say?
Hello, David?

If he knew me,
It would take a moment
Maybe I’d have to say,
It’s me,
Your niece

But it’s not him
But it gets me thinkin’

Closed curtains
Dirty dishes
Cigarettes inside and out

Stepping out for fresh air
She’d say
As if we kids didn’t know
She was lighting up

Can’t do dinner
Not today
Can’t get out of bed

A twenty every Christmas
Ain’t what I want
Grandma …

I’ll just stay away
My years are a little too late
To break through barriers
I didn’t make
