Don’t call it a comeback: I never left


Nobody tried to bring moxie back
until now—vigor, skill, know-how
(not to mention stick-to-it-iveness)
make the short-list of traits I seek out
in my victims. Sorry, dark thoughts
creep in when I’m listing, considering
fashion. Names will never harm me
I tell myself. But they still haunt me.
