New Writing


Edith Jenkins

April 2002

Sharon is the death dealer.
He deals out death from dearth,
how the victim is victor now
how he carries death in his heart
how he singes the victim
the death dealer, the boy with
the bombs, the girl aflame.
All, all is lost: the unforgiven:
the victim as victor, the victor
as victim. All then is lost.
