Apres Charles

~ Jew to Jew ~
         (After Charles)

The scorekeeping.

The passive aggressive
beautifully turned phrase

and of course,
The Zetz:
carefully crafted
and teeth-sharpened
for maximum impact.

As lasting and potent as the tools of their trades:

The Doctor  -> The Knife
The Dentist ->   The Hook

The Shrink  -> The Couch

The Lawyer ->   The Book

and of course

The Writer with his Mighty Sword:

the pen

  [that contains]

the ink

  [that contains]

the blood

  [that contains]

the DNA

that triggers

the hand to grasp

the precise instrument

 [they need]

to silence the women [the woman?]

who hurt them.
