Alla Vilnyanskaya


          For Robert Bolaño

When you spend most of your time
reading about senseless murder
is this how it feels:
first surprised
then intrigued?

Finally, droning through the pages
you begin to question
the author’s intentions

The victim has been choked
hyoid bone broken
5ft seven, hair: blond eyes: hazel
her checkered skirt
rolled above the knees

In her rectum
they find semen
at this point
a numb sensation takes over

at the bottom of evil
