This Reference to Jack the Ripper

This slit between thumb
and forefinger:

You know this is murder,

you know where this ends.

I twist your knife

and my body dies with a sigh.

Oh, the panicky phone calls at
2AM;

oh, the need to know:

Lodged between hemispheres:

To see is to trust, to trust

that all

is as it seems.

Peel skin to bone;

acquiescence is better

than silence,

and nothing is nothing at all.
