    It's All in the Wrists, Said Ted Bundy

    The others, of course, are more rabid than I
    but less apt to show it.

    Whenever I strike, I never romp off.
    I stand with the wrist that I've snatched

    from the lady locked in my teeth
    as I wait with a smile for the wagon.

    As one of the few wrist-snatchers
    still on the streets of Chicago,

    I make all of my rounds in old tennies.
    I dive for the purse hand, give it a whack,

    and sever the wrist without slobber,
    then stand like a Vatican Guard

    with her wrist in my teeth until
    I am certain I have no pursuers.

    In my dreams every night I can see
    all of those women whose wrists

    I have had in my teeth.
    They stand at their bus stops

    like Statues of Liberty,
    shrieking and waving their stumps like flares

    as I wait for their screams
    to bring to a frieze

    the patrol cars glowing
    in the middle of the street. read more »

    'Girls' Pad

    The T.V. houses that we see,
