The Junkyard Dog Bleeds

My love of words
is large and mean
and my heart
-it’s just a junkyard dog that
growls at nothing
and gnaws at old bones
until they’re dust.

I have become so much better
since I’ve obtained a strong handle
on the absurdity of myself
but still
there’s nothing easier
than picking up a bottle
when you’re heart is bleeding
all over the floor.

        You’re welcome. And thanks for thought; however, my book recently went out of publication as the publisher shut down, so unless you already have the ebook it won’t be possible to read it that way. But hopefully I’ll have another book soon with any luck. I hope your writing is coming along as well 🙂 Are you working on anything new?

      Well then luckily I already have the ebook! It’s taken me some time as I got a new job that eats all my hours but it’s a design job that definitely pays the bills so I can’t really complain. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to read or write in a few months now but I am hoping the workload will lessen by Fall so that I can begin a new book. In the meantime I am trying to write new poetry when I can and get back into reading. I have some new work I’ll be posting. Looking forward to reading more of yours.

        Sounds good. Well, I hope you enjoy my novel then, my friend. Paying the bills is always good thing and I truly look forward to your poetry as well as any new novels you finish. Have a great weekend!
