Poetry from J.J. Campbell

what could have been

the whispers

of my demise

are getting



i have never

bothered myself

with paying any

attention to them


i'm too damn

busy trying to

sabotage my

own life


so far


so good
too damn stubborn

sitting alone in a medical

facility waiting to have

some x-rays done


looking around at all

the old couples knowing

damn well i have already

lived half of my life


quickly thinking about

how i'll manage this shit

when i'm older, alone

and too damn stubborn

to ask for help


this is when i hope my

savior has beautiful eyes

and an ass that i can dream

about from across the room
and rainbow eyebrows

just walked by

a woman with

green lipstick


hopefully the

freaks are finally

taking over
the stranger

a stranger told me

online to seek out

the lord


i asked this stranger

if the lord was there

when i was molested

as a child or when

my father tried to

choke me to death




apparently the lord

was making sure

the stranger didn't

accidentally let the

truth get out
swiss cheese

the guy behind

me in the hospital

waiting room


just said the

doctor said his

mother's insides

looked like swiss



so much for that


J.J. Campbell (1976 - ?) is old enough to know better. He's been widely published over the years, most recently at Misfit Magazine, Disturb the Universe Magazine, Dumpster Fire Press, Horror Sleaze Trash and The Asylum Floor. You can find him most days on his mildly entertaining blog, evil delights. (https://evildelights.blogspot.com)
