Be the Voyeur

Taylor Napolsky

There is a copy

of Richard III 

to read, both for leisure 

and because I’m using 

it for a project. 


At first, I 

thought I could 

finish it off in

a little over four hours.

This turned out to be wrong.


What I’m looking for

has no specificity. 

Trails of particulates 

littered within this ancient

perverse story.


Alternating between 

tearing through it, and watching

a version on YouTube, with the 

spatial noise between lines,

at speeches’ peripheries.


Remember, there

are three

characters each with

the same

teasing name.
