Poems again

Not angsting really, just reworking some old stuff. See the old version “Match.” Sand I dislike the unlit match the beach sand clear dry air and new concrete. They’re dull, sandy, boring.

An explanation about this series PDF Version with notes Log 8(mini): Victor Pelevin – Buddha’s Little Finger As a sophomore in Honors Humanities, I read The Master and Margarita for a book talk, and it seems that most of it went over my head. I had hoped that my second attempt at Russian literature with absurdist elements, with Victor Pelevin’s Buddha’s Little Finger, would go better, but it doesn’t feel like it has.
