The Monster

the-monster
The monster is
half man, half
scrotum
his hair
the music of screams
his hands
a concern

A (glitt)erasure poem from: King, Stephen. Cujo. Viking Press, 1981. P. 3.

Ajar

ajar

in the daytime, anyway,
his
scream
hung ajar
swung clear of its latch
its rotting
**
A (glitt)erasure poem from: King, Stephen. Cujo. Viking Press, 1981. P. 9.

So you thought

so-you-thought
So you thought you’d fill up
but she
had
casserole
gushing out of her now
and
You–
you don’t know emptiness.

It was a big boy thing
it-was-a-big-boy-thing
It was a big-boy thing
Groceries
bad gas
a
rich young heiress
in two bites.
