Anne McMillen: Mind Static Volume 2

isolation bliss.
pain is easier to comprehend even when
it’s faked..
you’re another whore reduced from horror. we all deserve
a person
who will throw themselves away
in our name.
you can play jesus,
i’ll play the nail.

– Our Relationship

The second volume of the serial chapbook Mind Static by Anne McMillen. Part two is darker, more cutting, more jarring than the first! Life eviscerated by lost love, dreams and the waking nightmares of coming of age. An observation of the self as much as at society, these poems slice at its fabric. A collection of sobering yet insightful poetic anecdotes and narratives.
