I shiver when I think about you

reading this. Like a police dog hunting for
THIS IS A WAKE UP! This is a rude awakening
but don’t ask why…At least it’s not drink, sir!
(At least, it’s only a small time drug.)

The world is a sea
of questions/answers- are islands amidst the
crashing wavesdon’tthinkitwillbeokay-
It Won’t. Don’t utter a fort or
we will have lost. Don’t utter
a thought, don’t utter a fault, don’t utter…

that cars are invented to cull humanity,
humanity is invented to cull itself.

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤
