With Raspberry by A.J. Huffman

lemonade cupcake crumbs sugaring

my tongue, teaching me the value of savoring.

Sweetness is undervalued in the belligerent typhoon

of daily diatribic relations.  Coldly

we bounce about our self-

indulgent desires.  Flitter flipping through random

[e]motions until they ring, irrelevant, in ears that refuse

to welcome the softer textures of light

                                                             ly layered details.

Overlooked they melt atop the density of desire, hoping

this time not to get lost in the dementia of consume.

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❤
