Poetry Beatnik
"i don't want to die,"
   she said,
but is that what she felt?
   to do or die
to die or do
what's left for her
   is barely clear

do i want to die?
   do i want to die?
      do i want to die?

the drugs are weak
   the knife is dull
      no straight razors anywhere
         no rope
            no gun
               no broken source of gas

but do i want to die?

   (and when?)
