Poetry revision time: Novel

Novel

The last word typed, I thank
my characters. "No problem,"

says one as it plucks away
a face and wipes clean

its head. "We are always happy
to help birth a new story."


Already I see a sketch of webs
I could lay on their shapes -

these dolls who halter my text
and make eyes skip through scenes.

"I believe you know the way
out,"
the faceless one adds.
