The Ecphorizer

Sheila E. Murphy

Issue #46 (June 1985)

a prerequisite for laziness
package of heart attack seeds
that rattle

disinclined toward cruelty
you expose them to dirt
kick off your shoes
and slowly watch
over the long term

they start to eat you
like a bad joke
you didn't know
these were carnivorous plants 

SHEILA E. MURPHY lists her "true occupation" as poet, but works as a corporate educator for purposes of sustenance. She is also a lifelong flutist.
