Some Aren’t Poisonous was published at Napalm and Novocain today – A poem that, along with around twenty-five other pieces, was written five years ago over a three day period during a harsh, biting Winter that involved important conversations with Gurus on the Streets of Atlanta. Also involved in the process: many bottles of alcohol, handfuls of pills in the wee hours of the morning, and a hundred or so bong rips. In other words, a chemical cocktail designed to slam dunk the pineal gland into hyper drive performance. That doesn’t mean the writing was necessarily good, it just means I was able to see things from the other side for awhile. There are certain visions that are not meant to be rationally explained. There are certain paths that can never be retraced.
High/Low was accepted today by Crack the Spine for future publication. I now have a poem and a short story that will pop up in their pages at some point.
The sun came up, the sun went down.
Another day, Another dollar.
So it goes.
