Untitled Student Poetry

Untitled Student Poetry

Untitled You sculpt absence from the bulbous head that I once tried to push out of my palms              I turned over the desire in meager fingertips   Untitled i conquer everything orbits my chest to my fingertips, but still, an instinctual nightmare it’s too late to wait around for […]

Canadian Existentialism

Canadian Existentialism

So there I was on Amazon looking up what Russian propaganda I was gonna hang in my room not for any particular reason but because I’m sure people would stumble into my room and wonder what kind of man I was “Connor isn’t even Russian, I’m not sure he knows what his ancestry is” and […]

Needle sick & sunbathing on the white house lawn

Check out his stories and poems here and leave both pleasantly edified and confused: A Memory Behind Sight: (poem), Dear Ivy, 3-31-2015 (poem), Closure (short story), Witch of Newdath (short story). A […]

A Memory Behind Sight:

A Memory Behind Sight:

Sniffing with eyes closed to reproduce the effect you knew four years ago:   Slice of intoxication. Swinging blindly. Falling asleep in willow arms. I’m more concerned with you than I am with myself. Four finger puppets dancing in the glinting iris. Rhinoceros? Spiders. Playing violins in amber gas lamp windshield reflections of summer wine. […]

Dear Ivy, 3-31-2015

Dear Ivy, 3-31-2015

When looking at the sculpted ash rose petals clutching the cherry of my cigarette last night I realized that Holly was dead.
