Reading progress update: I've read 45 out of 165 pages.
Existence - Abbi Glines

The life I walk binds my hands

it makes me take things that I don't understand

I walk this dark world unknowing of what they hold true,

forgetting the me I once knew,

until you.

The life I walk eternally was all I knew

nothing more held me here to this earth

until you.

I feel the pain of every heart I take

I feel the desire to replace all that I have grown to hate

Darkness holds me close but the light still draws my empty soul

The emptiness where I used pain to fill the hole

no longer controls me, no longer calls me

because of you.

 

Ugh. Cheesy, much? But fine, whatever, I guess that's just her taste. My problem is that take and hate do not rhyme.

B Is for Bad Poetry - Pamela August Russell First, I have to say she's very brave to choose this title. I picked this up in a gift store in Port Townsend expecting it to be a collection of hilariously bad old poems, a la Bulwer-Lytton, but it's actually her own poems and snappy little bombs of sarcasm and wit they are. My husband and I laughed over some of them together and then I read the rest by myself later, a little bit at a time. They're funny, but cynical enough that I could only read about 10 at a time. I wouldn't say she has the finesse of Dorothy Parker, to whom she is compared, but if she put out another book, I'd probably read it. Here is an example of a short one:

--Unfortunate Cookie--
You will soon meet someone
who will bring you much joy and love.

Eventually they will devour your soul
like it's a hot dog eating championship.
