Poetry bores me.
I think I will become a poet
so I can bore people.
Inflicting boredoms not so far from pain.
I have always been interested in pain.
I had never thought of poetry like this
till now. I am less bored than I was.
I think dinner can wait.
I have written a lovely poem about a thumbscrew.
Let me show you my new metaphor.
If you've any comments on
this poem, Helena Nelson would be
pleased to hear from you.
