‘After the tea party’ (photo by Samuel Snoek-Brown)

There’s a kid in Portland
with a strong throwing-arm
and a secret box of trophies,
minute panties, plastic hands,
the rest is stranded in rigor
their forensics banal but defiant.

 

(I wonder if you find this photograph as chilling as I do. The stuff of Stephen King or Thomas Harris…)
