J.J. Campbell- A Poem

naked fools

so many faces
in the crowd

not enough time
to think of all of
them as naked
fools just dying
to hear me speak

sweaty palms
and a dry mouth


just vomit and get
this shit over with

and since when did
you start drinking
the hard stuff

chasing ghosts will
only get you to the

you have to become
one to run the damn

J.J. Campbell (1976 - soon) lives and writes on a farm in Ohio. He's been widely published over the years, most notably at Thunder Sandwich, Chiron Review, Fearless, Zygote in My Coffee, and Underground Voices. his latest book, Sofisticated White Trash, is available wherever they happen to sell books these days. You can find him most days whining and complaining about something on his blog, evil delights. (
