The Grind

Grovel before the men
that have no time or regard
for little wishes
the voices they beg with
from the bowels of the machine —
churning, grinding, using them
for something bigger
that’s never once been better
despite the advertising.




Dirty realism, grunge lit, creative confessions, spec fic, and assorted literary atrocities.
