This Reference to Jack the Ripper

This slit between thumb and forefinger,

I know you know it’s murder,

I know you know how this ends,

I twist your knife

and the 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 root to bone;

acquiescence is better

than silence,

and nothing is nothing at all.
