My poem Giving in to the Beast was published this morning at Record.
This piece is basically a reflection on social media and a reaction to my own decision recently to dive into the murky waters of the abyss after having avoided the scene like a plague for the past decade.
How many people have thought they could dance with the devil and come away unscathed? How many accomplished the feat? How many wound up sucking Satan’s cock? Well, I’ve always been pretty high on the idea of playing long odds…so on with the show…I’m the dark horse in this race but I’ve got a fifth ace up my sleeve…at least that’s what I keep telling myself in order to rationalize this course of action that’s been taken.
