a man is poised to write :: richard jarrette

by on March 9, 2016

A man is poised to write the last line
of an eleven-thousand page letter to his father
that he’s been working on while in prison.

He’s in the habit of talking to a fly
often found on the rim of his metal toilet
and speaks to it as he writes,

My cell has two windows onto a world
that is wondrous.
