The Still Man by Scott Cudmore
published in Volume 1, Issue 5 on November 20th, 1994

      	there is a man,
      	a man i know,
      	who lies so very still.

            he has
           no
                limbs
           at
           all.

       	he gnawed them off
      	through flesh and bone
      	in a struggle to be free.

      		so now he lies motionless
      		next to four bloody traps,
      		light as a whisper,
      		small as a mote,
      		and still.

he cries for the touch
of metal.
