Killer Poet


Through the assaults’ subtle gas
sprayed on the body of sentences,
I quench life of the impish people
to bring them down as wooden blocks
after reading my letters.
My sentences I order like soldiers.
ATTENTION, STAND AT EASE!
DO NOT SPEAK OR MOVE
UNTIL I TOLD YOU TO DO SO!
MARK TIME, FORWAAAARD MAAAARCH!
HALT! ATTAAAACK!
They are gunning down my victims
in dramaturgical strokes and pathos.
My sentences hit without warning.
Let eyes face the truth – I am a killer poet.
But, still, I say something.
NOW, STAND AT EASE!
