Note

Readers Note – Piece Contains Triggering Language: Suicide

Whether I clutch my creation too tightly
or it clutches me
there will be no suicide today

the note will go into recycling
and be made into newspaper
that will tell other stories
as unimportant and
no one will ever know

reflecting on this
I return a box of blades to the art store
and pick up an evening edition
