Poison In The Ink

 

In Spain, you can sit on park benches without being a child molester

Artists are often good with their hands, an important skill

In the act of self-homicide

 

If an ambulance driver in Italy

Never picked up a pen; in his hand, he said

It turned from a needle into a bottomless hunger

He died of starvation in a desert of remembered paintings

 

There is writing where writers have written about writers

Writing where we have gotten lost inside our heads

Or quite possibly each other’s
