    a poem review for a book of poetry:"i do not have an amputee fetish" the other day i saw a man with a hook for a hand and the hook was two hooksthat scissored together to grab thingsand i wondered if it was wired into his tendons somehowor how that worked and i looked at my hand and flexed my fingers without even really having to think about itand if i had a hook for a hand or like edwardscissors i could still hold a girl without armsbut she wouldnt be able tohold me
