Pour the whiskey over his heart and set it on fire. Then the poems come and he wakes up the next morning with a lit cigarette, his heart without a single burn ~ The fire purifies. Yeah, that's we roll. This collection will hypnotize you with an intense flicker and then engulf you in flames of creativity that are sick but somehow necessary. This phoenix isn't dickin around. 69 pages of straight horror, sleaze and trash. Let's raise some hell so we can get to heaven already, folks. Favorites were: 'Bachelorette Party','Cyst','Sleep Paralysis', 'I'd rather not be at this party in the first place'. Reckless, entertaining and satisfying.
I have followed Dragos on WordPress for many years now and he has entertained me all that time with some bloody good poems, you are guaranteed to get something dark and fucked-up that will give ya a chuckle….unless it’s just me giggling.
Horror Sleaze Trash presents this mighty fine collection from Dragos, it contains some of his most twisted material, I love how again and again he is able to surprise me with how the poem ends. In my opinion the tone of a poetry collection is always set by the first one, it has to be strong and it needs to get some kind of rise from you or you ain’t gonna enjoy what’s next, Dragos starts us off with “some things can never be put back together” a brilliant start, messed up and had me chuckling. Favourite poem was “Proposal” this one will make your eyes pop-out….what sort of mind can come up with something like this? Love it! Another brilliant one was “You cannot kill a poet” I was wondering where this one was going and the twist was genius.
This is a very good collection from one of my favourite poets, He produces a lot of work and it never disappoints.
