To murder is muzak. To murder is the wave-rolling breath of
wordless languor caught behind the flat, cold palms of soft-
shutting office doors. To murder is to see Dick run; run Dick run.
To rape is youtube. To rape is to rain stitches of quick,
digestible images on the family room floor. To rape is to
see Jane . . . anyone seen Jane? To pillage is hallmark.
To pillage is the unraveling tongue of the tumbling tide, under cry of
skyward gulls, lapping away footprints pressed in the tiles of superstore
aisles. To pillage is to see Dick run and to see Jane . . . Jane?
