The Scud Man, Anna Fullmer

He stays in the downstairs unit

of our should-be-condemned house

with a slumped Rottweiler named Charles.

They both look like living taxidermy.

Scud Man hangs and drains

a deer carcass in our driveway.

He makes me soup from its heart.

He leaves me food in the hallway.

He stands outside my apartment door.

He has a look in his eye.
