Poetry from John Patrick Robins


It was a mystery to us all.

“Man I’ve had some shit reviews but never one that I couldn’t understand.”

All my friends read it and yet none could explain.

The four star review and the weird ass comment .

We all speculated but this mystery remained unsolved.

The hipster critic and editor had created a legend within itself.

I rather crack a bottle than crack a code.

Some mysteries are best left unsolved.

R.T.C Arthur.

Leonardo da Vinci doesn’t have shit on you.
