Epstein Didn't Kill Himself | By Eileen Lynch

Sometimes I forget I’m a diva

then I end up in line for some

basement bar bathroom behind

three Jewish girls clutching

rum punch and Purell.


And the stall has wet garbage

paper maiche’d to the floor,

black limbic graffiti

inch to ass cross the door ––


EPSTEIN DIDNT KILL HIMSELF


a paperclip tells me.

I contemplate adding another one:


restock the TP you whores :)
