Tad Richards
Sookie's Penetralium


Yesterday
Sookie let a fine
isolated
verisimilitude
slide right by

I was not too pleased
it left a wake
of clear light
it might have come from the
penetralium

of mystery
and I could have used it
isn’t that
her job? But there’s no
use fighting it

Sookie only believes
in her own
penetralium
which she lets me
near on rare occasions

never all
the way in but it’s
what I’ve got
Sookie’s speed rack brand of
half knowledge
