dementia criss-crosses spine,
shooting demon monkey thoughts
into my mind, then being
man's eternal polymers
all bubble with correcting
decay at some future point
my mark's mostly unseen, not
for lack of trying, but I
seem to be too far outside

sunrise over any place -
man's dark infrastructure of
progress lurks ominously
eight wheels of eighteen, holding
thin metal and wood boxtops,
scattered across wastelandscape

ghosts of dead father lurking,
laughing that forced feigned "huh-huh",
cigarettes, cheap beer, and gas
my job was to check lightbulbs
the day the fair got set up,
told “lights is important, boy!”
Sir Chillington Loungewirth and
his immoral homies plot
their next “election” victor

New Writing books now available: Shard Haiku & Rojonekku Book-a-Zine

Recently released this past week or so are two new Raven Mack offerings of human language.

#1: SHARD HAIKU: BOOK ONE: which is collection of the some of the sets of ten haiku deemed "shard haiku" because I firmly believe in writing you can stab people with, but not people so much as civilization. These can be seen in some form on the rojonekku twitter or using the shard haiku tag on this site. But this book is a selection of them, in printed form. It makes a great addition to any cinderblock and milk crate book shelf. (There is no kindle version because the font used is a tough one, and that is by design, and kindle processing sterilizes font into a weak spiceless pablum of readability, which I can sometimes abide by, but not in this case.)

#2: ROJONEKKU BOOK-A-ZINE: VOL. 1: which is a collection of the assorted ramblings of me. A large chunk of the first half of this is taken from the four of the six issues of my Rojonekku zine, but being I have recently decided to retire from the zine format I previously used (due to costs) and put those poetic-philosophical nonsense gibberish preachings out in this form, there's a lot of new shit too. Essentially, as I explain in the thing (and sub-title it), it is more than a zine but also probably less than a book, if you are inclined to think of book as novel. That's not to say it's not as good as a book, because you will read the fuck out of this more than most "real" books. I'm pretty great at the unreal. (And there is kindle versions of this one.)

Please, if you enjoy my beautiful nonsense, support my beautiful nonsense. And tell others if you love me, by word-of-mouth or goodreads or amazon reviews or whatever the fuck makes sense to you. I have crabgrass creativity, thus the algorithm pesticides me deep into obscurity. All I really have is word-of-mouth. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL PAGAN MC!
