Twiggy C. Tubercio

Rookie (1992-? / Scott City, KA)

Serial Killer

swift in the veins of the streets
climbing the ladder towards your brain
towards your surrounding sanity
stalking you
a killer in the face of a child
knowing who and how
not knowing names or places
adversary of insanity
serial killer
uncle SAM's worst nightmare
hate in the heart of gold
the first leaf to fall
a sporadic burst of unintentional convulsions
jolt of pain from which brings most smiles
murderer using a simile like a tourniquet
just to tell someone
try and get it out
but deep inside
I know the cthonic energy
I know it like I know my closest friend
not very well at all
not very good

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
