Sad Discoveries by India LaPlace
"There are many people out there who should not be publishing poetry.

I say this, not as some grand arbiter of taste, but rather just as anyone who's ever spent two minutes browsing poetry online. This isn't to say there's nothing good b..." Read more of this review »

In all honesty, I'm really shocked at the 1-star, 2-star and 3-star reviews on here.

I have been feasting on Buk's writings for over two decades. I wouldn't dream of giving him less than 5 stars for any book.

“I've drank her wine - intoxication.
Her taste lingers on my tongue
And yours
And his
And hers.

She gifts her fruit to all.

And like the poisonous apple,
Those who indulge
Never leave.”
Vanessa de Largie


Let’s sing songs that we don’t know the words to.
Let’s have a screaming match in a public library.  

Let’s drink champagne out of each other’s belly buttons.
Let’s have sex in a packed parking lot.  

Let’s walk the city streets giving small change to buskers.  

Let’s eat icecream in the snow.  

Let’s write a list of all the things we want to do to each other’s genitals.  

Let’s try to understand those who don’t understand us. 

Let’s cover ourselves in paint and fuck on a massive canvas.  

Life will continue after our deaths.

But let it continue today -- without us.”
Vanessa de Largie

“I saw what a mess a lot of people could make of their lives when they're smitten. Some of them go temporarily insane. They find a person who they think holds the key to their happiness-the only key to their happiness... My work has always been my greatest happiness”
Mae West

“You save yourself or you remain unsaved.”
Alice Sebold

“Sometimes the dreams that come true are the dreams you never even knew you had.”
Alice Sebold, The Lovely Bones

“Do you hate people?”

“I don't hate them...I just feel better when they're not around.”
Charles Bukowski, Barfly

“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
Charles Bukowski

Fede Cheers Vanessa. Sexy and talented. Keep it coming ;)

Vanessa Largie Hello Ken. Congrats on the release of your new book 'The Road to Amistad'. I look forward to reading it.

You needn't be saddened, that was the talent and potency of your writing. Mainly because I have a 'weak stomach' with anything medical...I found it tough in some parts but I'm sure others would not. It was a great story, an important story. Thank you for writing it!
