Previous Feature: J.J. Campbell

J.J. Campbell (1976 – ?) is old enough to know better. He’s been widely published over the years, most recently at Horror Sleaze Trash, In Between Hangovers, Poetry Pacific, Record Magazine, and Synchronized Chaos. You can find him most days on his highly entertaining blog, evil delights.

steal your pleasure

it’s been years since i
have kissed a woman

i’m starting to get
rejected in my dreams

this is the drawback
to not making any
money

you have to get creative
to find a way to steal
your pleasure

but these broken bones
have seen enough

apathy wins more than
it used to these days

it’s too much to ask for
some goddess to come
along and save me

fuck, even jesus said no

but, when all hope is gone

there is always some soul
who is worse off

too bad no one can remember
a telephone number anymore

*

uncomfortable laughter

another night
of insanity

another night
of drinking
underneath
the train tracks

another night
where you
believe being
ass raped is
gonna be the
best poem to
describe your
life

another night
of uncomfortable
laughter

another night
consumed by
lost souls in
this wasteland

another night
seeking a better
tomorrow
