Note pads

Slowly the poison the whole bloodstream fills,
The waste remains, the waste remains and kills.

- William Empson, Missing Dates


Look. This tangled kelp, these squiggles on white
is the maze through which my verse emerged.
Now the kelp’s dead, but I must write,
write till the poison’s purged.

How did you ever come up with kelp? Interesting.
