DICK by Jayson Iwen

30 pages

Published in a numbered edition of 100 copies.


“Call me

between paying and being paid

an everlasting itch


ten inches

like a candle

in a tomb


restless needle


in the body of a man



to which the hand belonged

unsheathes the head


like a sun-toasted pear

to show forth in one array

a high social polish




for fear



before me

my shadow here on earth


its long angle

the meat

on its passage out"
