“Benevolent Things”

Writers are murderers in their own right,

sealing fates with words of contrite.

It is on the carcasses of trees that they ink their tales,

compositions,

ails.

Blood is the ink by which they use,

blackened by the deaths it has transduced.

Employed are a writer’s words of guise,

capable of telling both truth and lie.
