This poem contains abusive language, drug use, mention of suicide and self harm, weird violence, and a bunch of other stuff that commonly bothers human beings. (Mid October, 2023)
This is a poem I wish I didn’t have to write–but somehow, somewhere, maybe it can help someone with a better chance than me. (Early October, 2023)
This is a poem about how no matter how lost you may feel at any point in time, or how bleak the future may seem forevermore, you might just end up finding your blood-drenched bed of roses out in Blackest Igvarmord. (Early September, 2023)
This poem tells the story of a transformative time in my life that been a constant and much-needed reminder of why I suffered through all those lonely years to begin with. (August’s final breaths, 2023)
This poem follows the slipstream-meets-sci-fi saga of Zyklon Xzyruz to the ends of eternity and back. Sometimes, you have to abandon all hope to end up in the right place at the right time. (Early August, 2023)
A poem about nothing and everything, written on a very special night after doing the impossible and bending reality in my favor–if only for a little while. (Late July, 2023)
Poems can be stories, too. This one is about my persistent, gnawing dream of going back to the Free Worlds. Trouble is, I don’t want to go alone. (July 2023)
A visceral, disturbing story about unconditional love through trauma-bonding. In the soul-choking haze of teenage loneliness, tenderness is the most mind-bending drug of all. Contains graphic s*xual and psychological abuse, as well as drug use and self harm. (July 2023)
A genre-bending homage to my Eastern European heritage and extraterrestrial soul origins. (Written in the darkest winter of early 2023; Published in July)
A Sword and Planet slipstream about remembering who you are and where you came from, no matter how much it burns. (June 2023)
A dark, sad story about about facing trial by fire at the end of the universe. Don’t read this one if you’re upset by graphic descriptions of self-harm, suicide, or drug use. (June 2023)
A poem I wrote in the halcyon days of youth: Days which I only hope I can someday return to again–in this life, and all the others. (June 2023 – Forever)
A new weird slipstream that carries you back to a place that always was, but never should have been. (May 2023)
A “fun” little horror flash piece that should only be read at bedtime. (February 2023)
