What People are Saying

"Every revolting scent and sight is described so thoroughly, that it felt as though at that moment I was THERE. I found this book quite enjoyable... These pages have something for every reader, and I highly recommend it!"

The Hobgoblin of Truth No. 16

3AM

and the cold

has me smoking in

the garage on break

from writing

it was waiting for me

          cross-legged in a chair

          tusk-teeth pushing its yellow

          lip into something like a smile

Why don’t you sleep? it says

Why torture yourself?

Ten years at it and not a dime

No shred of notoriety

Just shit posture

And dead pens

You won’t be remembered

So

     Just

          Go

               To

                     Bed

 

i smoke and look

at its smile

in three steps

i’m all but on top

               of the yellow sonuvabitch

i exhale the filter smoke

in its eyes

and tell it to fuck off

i’ve got writing

to do
