I never did the drugsTo Jennifer Waller's previous piece     Like statues we standTo Jennifer Waller's next piece


I saw a man with no hands--
He could shave his beard
With only his feetÖ

And I became afraid
That if I lost my hands,
My beard would grow thick-
My hair would go uncombed-
Iíd live off delivery Chinese,
That I ordered dialing a phone
With my nose.

So I took the butcher knife
And chopped off my left hand-
Just to be sure Iíd be all right 

I didnít make plans for the right hand-
And itís interesting-
Your right hand
Absolutely refuses to cut itself off.
