Tommasina Domel

A Cowardly Poem

I excised it with a scalpel
and laid it into gloved hands
placed it in a jar with formaldehyde
and set it on a shelf
so you could read it here
in all its sterile inelegance
without getting blood on your hands
without getting blood on mine.

Tommasina Domel lives in a sleepy hollow.
