Cajun Mutt Press Featured Writer 10/07/19



it’s too easy
the floodgates have opened
the whole ocean
of the dreamtime
pours through us
as we scroll, tap
and follow the scent
into increasingly darker corridors

next thing
you’re reading a story
about a woman
who likes to be fucked
with the cold barrel
of a loaded shotgun
and your breath is short
and your dick is hard
and what the fuck

so fuck it
if we’re gonna do this
let’s do it right
pull the plug
on god
slit his throat
for good measure
paint our faces
in his immortal blood

hammer all the tablets
to dust
and soon
snuff films
will be primetime
we’ll make the Roman circus
look like Sesame Street
