Verse: Warning

of careless writers
who want to make
a place of time
and put you in it

who never modify
a list of things
knowing you
will give them meaning

who disappear
when you leave
the room and
answer your question
with questions

who collect
beautiful objects
and adorn them
with borrowed
tired, ugly words

who put their
tortured songs
in your heart
and compel you
to carry that weight
and infect others

with their
and intimations
of insatiable desire.
