the crumpled page

crush it, flatten and tear it to shreds
squeeze it through a pinhole
then squash it in a corner
kill it, end it – make sure that it’s dead
wretched pest
the morrow brings doubt’s return
annoying me again
setting my unease ablaze
a mouse, a verminous devil
an idea not meant for the page
waste of my time
sign of my failure
I must get a cat

from the desk of Nigel Burke
