THE DEATHBED VERSION

A NEW POEM

by Scott Zieher

Local Boy Finds Rhyme with OrangeDoor-hinge! Loses Fight for Life in Hospital. As we go to press—last-minute news from East to West—Canadian student kills the infamous trickster who, with his company cronies, went to Schenectady by car. These were among his final freedoms. At Schenectady in synecdoche, he clanked the planks. His removal from the hotel to the hospital was made at the suggestion of the manacles and high wires.

We hope you enjoy this excerpt.
