A Complaint to Paper|Antonia Facciponte

You would be more useful as blank
pulp. Beloved paper, you sleep,

booked to silence—closed,
too conceited to fraternize

with graffiti that grips the tangy,
grease-stained streets of Toronto,

too proud to mingle with the beat
of a subway-stationed sax. You jail

my letters into un-glossed lines.
Why can’t you, dear lifeless leaf, break

from laurel ropes,
wheel into lungs?
