The Muse’s Bad Touch – New poetry collection by Bogdan Dragos

Here it is. 

A collection of dark poems highlighting the toxic and deadly relationship between poet and muse.

DISCLAIMER: suitable only for a mature audience.

D' you like the cover? I designed it myself  ∩(・ω・)∩ 

Check out the free sample poems (and maybe leave a review). Thanks! 

I don't wanna say that the poems contained in this book are dark. It would sound pretentious right off the bat. But, yeah, between dark and light, you know already where they stand.

nu mă lasă să beau și insistă să ascult de ea insistă cu ardoare – Asta-i pentru că lucrezi ture de noapte, zice ea. – D-apăi ce are asta de-a face cu băutul în timpul liber? – Alcoolul scade nivelul de testosteron la bărbați și creste nivelul de estrogen. De ce nu știi asta? Trebuie să ai mai mare grijă de tine. Mi-a pregătit și o dietă cu orez și usturoi. Mă tot sună pe turele de noapte și-mi zice să intru în baie și să fac o sută de sărituri și să fac exerciții de întindere, îmi zice să beau mai multă apă. Îmi cumpără chiar și pungi de nuci și semințe și-mi zice să le mănânc între mese. – Și fară zahăr, îmi zice, nici măcar în cafea. Simplă sau deloc. Mi-a cumpărat până și un aparat din ăla de exerciții pentru încheietura mâinii cu…

it was around 3 AM no sleep no work in the morning either so she got up turned on the TV tuned it off got her pack of smokes out of the handbag lit one and smoked it as she stared at the fish tank from up close. "This is how I used to watch TV while growing up," she said to the only moving fish in the tank. "The screen didn't mess up my vision. But the things shown on it did. I've a very bleak vision of the world now." She blew the smoke against the glass The one fish that still moved around was too busy eating from the flesh of its deceased friends to notice her "You look pretty happy," she said. "Say, have you ever regretted talking someone out of suicide? Um? Well, I had. I, uh, was seeing this guy whose little daughter died…

“The Muse’s Bad Touch”, #Book_review – by Literature World

Literature World

Bogdan Dragos, my friend and fellow blogger in the WordPress community, has published a solo anthology. Book titled, “The Muse’s Bad Touch: Dark poems from bright nights”.

I have downloaded poems from this book for free. I’m sharing my thoughts on the same.

About The Author:

Bogdan Dragos is a Romanian poet supervises casinos for a gambling company, working twelve-hour shifts locked in a dark office full of TV monitors. There he mostly daydreams and writes poems and stories.

Briefly About The Book:

This is a very difficult topic to discuss. This book brings awareness about bad touch, child abuse and sexual abuse.

Children fight and become friends within seconds but things take a different turn when elders fall in between them.They don’t even know that child abuse is initiated by their elders.

Mentally bad thoughts come into their mind and they carry it.

At a time when values should…

Oh God, here she

comes again

by my window

with her dog on

a leash

and now the noise


It’s not barking. I

wish it

was barking

but instead

it’s crying, making

those whimpering

sounds children make

when they try to hold

a cry in

The full cry of some

creatures is

like the suppressed

cry of others

This dog shows me that

we humans

tend to respond to the

suffering of other

creatures only if their

cries are properly

expressed and as close to

ours as possible

That is what gives

their lives

value in our eyes

Step on some random

insect and nobody

gives a damn

It’s because the insect has

no way of communicating

to you that it’s in pain

So underdeveloped is their

ability to express pain

that they have literally

no rights in society

and anyone can do

whatever they…

the music
makes my lungs quake 

there are people 
all around 
jumping up and down 
howling into each other's 

the lights blaze from above
and the sides 
and even from the floor 

the immense room feels 
like the surface 
of a star 

and its inhabitants dance 
and cheer 
in the flames 

Everyone is happy 
everyone's ecstatic 

having the time of their

And I am amidst 
them all 

They are talking to me
Expecting replies 

The party goes 
on and on
and on 

God... I've never felt lonelier
in my life.

there can be only one of us. The other one’s got to go by Bogdan Dragos

noise never attracted me it always did the opposite, so when this bar too got noisy I got out of there and went back home Well, life is strange this way. When you walk away from something, you find something else Like a pesky street magician shoving cards in your face, begging you to pick one, the universe likes to present you things, events, people There was more noise in my apartment building than at the bar Someone was throwing a lousy party I didn't have a problem with the party in itself. It was the music I couldn't stand The music was shit And just as I make my way up the stairs I see this girl seated ahead of me, dressed for the occasion. Black high heels with crimson red soles, black skirt and some black tank top. Her hair was done in voluminous curls, the makeup was…

a robust



and a pale moon,

both very friendly

and with enormous smiles

shook hands

right above her

painted on

the low ceiling

She watched them

from her bed,

lying on her back,

thinking that

they’ve always been there

and she glanced on

them since early childhood

when she first

gained awareness in this


And ever since

then she lived with

the idea

that nothing was real

The painted sun

and moon

shaking hands were not

the real sun and moon

They were an imaginary

replica made after

imaginary entities

Nothing in existence

was real

besides her

The whole of existence

is but one single

being hallucinating,


It’s only her

Her alone

And she’s lying on this

unreal bed

and staring at

an unreal ceiling

featuring two unreal



very soon the unreal door

will open wide

and a totally, absolutely,

camera îngustă
ușa închisă
ușa încuiată
fereastra închisă
jaluzelele trase care țin
soarele la distanță

un scaun
un stomac gol care te 
imploră să nu mai torni
țuică în el

mai multă țuică

încă un pic

ești gata

acum poți începe
să scrii

Poetry Book Reviews: Bogdan Dragos and Michele Lee Sefton

I recently embarked on a Poetry Book Reading Marathon since so many of my WordPress friends have created and published poetry collections. Since they’ve been supportive of me, I want to support them! I will be posting a series of reviews of their books.

The Muse’s Bad Touch by Bogdan Dragos (2021). Available on

Bogdan is a Romanian poet who appears regularly on MasticadoresIndia, MasticadoresRomania, and Gobblers & Masticadores. His poetry is dark and rich, like strong expresso, and leaves you questioning your own reality. He explores the darker side of life with characters that can only be described as eccentric, exotic, and deeply disturbing. His ability to test acceptable social boundaries and express a point of view that would shock most people, is what defines his work. In this collection, he writes about his dark muse:

Gobblers & Masticadores

A man's whole life revolves around his work that's what we've been raised to believe, haven't we? What right under the heavens have you, a man, to demand acceptance, love, gratification, without giving something in return? From the very days of creation you have been told: “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” Put in the work, man. Put in the work. There's no way around. There just isn't. The words were carved deep with a hunting knife on the top of his desk, and whenever he'd fling and hurl the papers and pens away he'd see and read them and then cover them back with papers and pens Being a writer is just as hard as any other job but you can make…
