TO THE PUBLISHER
> I read and find your request intriguing
> you ask for bizarre tales for your book
> and I’m cheerfully ecstatic and disposed
> to send you a particularly special poem
> in which you will find yourself taking center stage.
> I know you and your dreams
> I will send you what you’re due
> but first I must prepare
> to dare to feed your need.
> You will be the story
> for you will make a great hero
> of this tale of gut wrenching woe
> this eerie tale will be well-calculated
> to keep you locked in your room
> locked and barred, awash in a sea of dread and gloom
> It will be a great test of my surgical skills
> you will be the focus of this narrative!
> I foresee the focal point for this body slicing tale
> the extinguishing of your life
> all in gruesome detail it will be the rage
> because it will be you!
> You will love it!
> I can’t wait to begin my plan
> all with your perfect body in mind
> look for me in your imaginings, as
> they turn from fancy dreams to bloody screams
> At some time in the darkest of nights unbeknownst to you
> I will come to your bed in all my glory
> hauling my tools of pain to butcher and dismember your body
> I will give release to my sadistic side
> I will create your desired perfect tale of horror,
> bit by bit, piece by surgically-removed piece
> it will be the bizarre account you have been asking for
> and it will be perfection
> My goal will be to give you a great show
> with a bloody exhibition of how
> to slowly extinguish a life
> all in its gruesome detail.
> I will tape it
> so everyone can see how carefully and deliciously
> I prepare your individual guts, cook and eat them
> I’ll bet you’re real tasty
> It will be you and only you
> you will love it!
> I can’t wait to execute my plan
> exclusively with you in mind
> Wait for me in your dreams
> as they turn to gory nightmares
> when sometime on the darkest of nights
> I will crawl into your mind
> and create my masterpiece —
