This Space is for Writing
To pin this poem to the page
like one example of a beetle
with a thousand variants
to stop its skitter.
A last draft hollowed and devoid
or everything but shell and beauty,
lucky thing. Preserved somewhat forever,
useful until the end of days.
I would buy my lovers ISBNs
if it mattered,
which is usually to say
if it were something I could do.
