Poignant Prose


Scribbles in the Library

I wish that the
efforts of all
my brain parts
could produce
something more
worthwhile than
this And now my
pen has stopped
working Damn
you Federal
Library Program
I thought that
I’d found a
reliable friend
in your method
of advertisement

— Elizabeth Campbell


violent cougar photos
your kidney has issues
tremendous calisthenic nachos
abdominal misuse
i’ll never let a better set of pets
enter my life again
i’ll never expect that things will last
with any animal friends

— Maxwell Wood
