2 poems by Joseph James Cawein

It’s Easy
 
It’s difficult to translate doubts across minds
like the great big sea and a great big wave
a swirling world of infinite oceans
and we’re all walking around with a stick up our ass
and saying how do you? because we’ve no clue
just what to do with ourselves.
It’s difficult to establish doubts without
more doubts arising and cluttering up the place
when the single driving force of everything is
existential terror.
It’s easy to shrug after
four or five glasses or whiskey
Writer’s Cock Block
 
air of presumed integrity
masking deviant skeletal self
before the collapsing firmament
of spectral sea

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❤
