S. Simpkins

Chewed Or Cut

nothing but teeth
wolverine hunger
everything sharp edges
everything nails
                                 broken glass
spikesrazor cutsneedles
knifes & daggersforks
jagged rocks
everybody gets
                                 chewed or cut

S. Simpkins: I'm a 56 year old recovered drunk who writes poetry. I grew up in L.A. then lived (and sobered up) in Hollywood. I also suffer from depression for which I take Zoloft. While the Zoloft has helped, I still wind up visiting those bleak barren landscapes that constitute depression. My major influences have been Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Allen Ginsberg and Charles Bukowski.
