XI: Poetry by John Sweet & Photography by Kris.K.G, 3
This fear, and that
The factories, burning, and the promises
of safety. The bitter taste of America.
A man with a gun hiding in the trash that
fills the back yard, his wife inside the house,
and his mother, and his children, and all of
them dead. Southern California, near the
end of the century or maybe right at the
beginning. Helicopters, moving closer.
Television. Dogs and cameras. The
endless blue sky, which you’ve always
taken for granted.
John Sweet sends greetings from his bunker in the rural wastelands of upstate New York. He is a firm believer in writing as catharsis, and in the need to continuously search for an unattainable and constantly evolving absolute truth. His latest collections are A NATION OF ASSHOLES W/ GUNS (Scars Publications, 2015) and APPROXIMATE WILDERNESS (Flutter Press, 2016).
