'Book Club' by Carla Sarett

I was talking about

Mrs. Dalloway.

Emma said Dylan really needs

Ritalin really.

Jane said Ritalin didn’t stop

Jimmy really.

Adam drove a knife

through my new painting

right where the mouth is,

Lilian said, really.

I said, your painting, really.

Jane said, a knife, really.

Emma said, the mouth, really.

Really, Lilian said.

All rights. Carla Sarett.
