Jan Wiezorek – 1 poem



Surmise: defacing tool,

creating faux relief.


I, handheld and struck

to imprint.


Pressed by palm,

administered tactile,


scrolled in difference,

alerting courtrooms,


documenting valleys

and ridged fingers,


forced between

two appointed orbs


that never orbit. 

Once free, I sit amazed,


caught in produced



and surface

blood blistering


by bounding



at skin canvas

squeezed to chest and navel hair.
