Kleptomaniac by Peter Schwartz

Kleptomaniac

the problem with stealing is
knowing which side of the grave
to put it on

everything’s flavored just below
the line of ripe for a reason
but this is just an allegory

of how the night outgrows us
told by rats and vultures, the problem
with stealing is knowing

Peter Schwartz’s poetry has been featured in The Collagist, The Columbia Review, Diagram, and Opium Magazine. His latest collection ‘Old Men, Girls, and Monsters’ was released as part of the Achilles Chapbook Series. He’s an interviewer for the PRATE Interview Series, a regular contributor to The Nervous Breakdown, and the art editor for DOGZPLOT.
