Cockroaches (Free verse) by Jill Stockinger
DISGUSTING! Another cockroach poem just ran across my page. STOP IT before it gets away on its little scribbling feet and engenders hundreds more horrible little cockroach poems; they multiply so quickly. STOMP! There. I think that ended it. Oh no! It got away!

Up the ladder: Time to leap
Down the ladder: The Equalizer

I imagine this being about poems that write, usually after considerable wine, and read the next day before they have escaped to somewhere, and they are like cockroaches--slimy infectious creatures. I keep them though, tuck them away for they are part of me, and in the right light and the right revision might become. Become what? Nothing probably, but who knows.
