warning: writers (if)

warning: writers (if)

if you find your life
entangled with a writer
heed this warning

if you find yourself
a writer’s lover or spouse

if you find yourself
(god forbid) a writer’s child

if you need food shelter or clothing
or (god forbid) an affectionate hand

if you need even a trace of selfless intimacy
thisi mean, this is all you will get


stark and solitary across a page
and they will be as satisfying as

tearing a page from a novel
to slip into your dry mouth
