At Some Point, The Murderers Dropped The Knife
The Victim Found It And Handed It Back To them
Harry, I have an itch
just below the left shoulder blade.
Can’t quite reach it.
If you would be so kind,
I would be eternally grateful.
The Premature Extinction Of A Not So Rare Species

while her partner was
watering his Eupatorium Maculatum.

basically live in the stuff.
He could be gone for hours
and that’s all the time she needed.
