Writing as if I was the first Man to evolve on Earth. There is a spirit to kidnap and harbor in your rib cage.
Raccoons are not too intoxicated to tear down a building
We are organizing in mass to be a force that will be destroyed before the Enemy even knows we are there. Who aroused the riot of Runt Raccoons everywhere? Who pushed us to stick our tongues in cracks in the system?
The Bosses we can’t get off our backs. The bang bang and ratatatat of police militarization. The War on Drugs. The rejection of Sincerity, the rejection of Love. The abuse of…
Internet Poetry, affordable passion
I don’t feel creative clicking and scrolling
Passion cannot be afforded by everyone
Sometimes Freedom won’t feel real unless it’s stolen
The single mother working 50 hours a week to support 5 children
Folks who have the usual explosives pointed at the vicinity of their family’s heads
The millionaires who are not yet millionaires
Financial dreams scramble over each other’s bodies like angry spiders…
Weeding out the thorns from #NewSincerity
“Airports see more sincere kisses than wedding halls. The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches.”
The wedding bells ring from under glass stained thorn bushes. Unpopular Messiah turns wine into water. His ratings drop in the polls. The etymology of Love was found to be chemical and not language oriented. I like the way your pheromones make me sleepy.…

Terpischore’s Atrium with Jeremiah Walton
3.The most striking aspect about your poems is their exploration of the jagged, raw, and scarred realms of language and human experience, as opposed to the prim manicured composition many of the poets strive for. Poems such as ‘Campfire Psalms of the Lost and Angry ’,‘ Fearful 3 and ‘Where I found God’ are beautiful and unique precisely because of their haunting imagery, forceful language and a…
That is you. That is me. That is the #fly on the lamppost,

We’re currently preparing to flee Denver, Colorado. We sold books at the 16th Street Mall, the Mercury Cafe, and worked our way around the area exploring.

Small Press Roulette
Karen Lillis with Small Press Pittsburgh
Karen Lillis’s pop-up bookstore, Small Press Pittsburgh, was a direct influence on the creation of Books & Shovels. I met her in Erie, P.A. at Poets’ Hall during her feature with Zarina Zabrisky and Simon Rogghe. Her project, Small Press Roulette, is a concept we’re truly digging, both in concept and by trying to shed light on the wonderful work she’s…
If you have funds and believe in their project, consider donating to their Indie GoGo Campaign.
I like this guy. Also, he is publishing a poem of mine in “Fuck Art, Let’s Dance” on July 1st entitled ‘Starfish.’ Stay tuned!
