Misericordia: Flashback at the Writing Workshop

Stephen Kuusisto, Letters to Borges

Silent laughter

History of marginalia

Scribes kicking one another

During the Mass

A stray cat walks in circles

Everyone has scars on his back


“What’s behind this writing?”

Says the instructor

Who scarcely knows what he asks

One thought on “Misericordia: Flashback at the Writing Workshop”

  1. We want to think that writing instructors, having written, would have more sense.
