Why can't everyone speak Jon?
Dude, It's the awesomest

An 80s cartoons
And a sophistimicated

"In a thousand different cities;
Standing up
And sharing poetry
With the zeal and lust
Of hellfire preachers
And angry rioters.

I want poetry to be alive and dangerous again."

"One last fix
Of powder and steel.
One last time
Where "The Mercy Seat"
Is mutter in prayer
To short-circuit electric hands.
Last march out;
March as brothers,
Charge as brothers,
Fall as brothers."

Sitting Up With the Dead by Allen Berry

Published November 13, 2016
Chapbook - 34 pages, 5.5" x 8.5", ISBN: 9781539939955
There is no style in a self-painted
Thanatopsis someone else
will have to clean up.

This is supposed to be poetic.
It's supposed to mean something,
to make the world split open and
everyone take notice,
think for a moment: "wow, that was art."
