Apatie

se-ntoarse de la lucru destul de devreme și mi-am dat seama de cum am văzut-o c-a demisionat iar A schimbat patru slujbe în ultimele cinci luni și și-a tatuat cuvântul APATIE pe spate, jos Tatăl ei a murit acum cinci luni. A murit beat la volan, dar nu tocmai din cauza beției. Sorbea omul dintr-o sticlă de bere în timp ce mergea relativ încet pe un drum de țară. Deodată roțile din față au lovit ceva buștean și impactul a declanșat airbag-ul. I-a explodat în față și i-a împins sticla aia de bere fix în ochi, adânc de tot, cauzându-i o traumă majoră la creier. Odihnește-te-n pace, bătrâne. Poate nu nevasta, dar fiica sigur îți simte lipsa. Uite-o, vine de la lucru murdară și zdrențăroasă, se apropie de mine și-mi poruncește să-i dau o țigară. Eu îi întind o brichetă mică, iar ea-mi zice să mi-o trag…

“Muses,” he said, “aren’t only

for writing

and painting, and stuff

like that.

That’s just what the

world likes

to believe.

But me, I use my muse

as inspiration

for pranks. This is my art.”

A few days ago

he dressed in

ragged clothes

and got his face dirty with

soot

and went around a

bus station

begging people for

spare change

He didn’t get any,

but that

wasn’t the point

The point was to be seen

by as many people

as possible

as he cried

and stated loudly that he’s

so hungry

he could eat anything

People did their best

to ignore him

until

they saw him walk by the

trashcan near the station

and reaching for

something inside

His hand came out

with a

used diaper. It looked full

and yes, he proceeded to

lick and slurp its contents

“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…

Poetry Book Reviews: Bogdan Dragos and Michele Lee Sefton

Dawn Pisturino's Blog

(Photo by Aaron Burden on Unsplash)

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 Amazon.com.

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:

“After all

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…

Într-o căsnicie deschisă

MasticadoresRumanía Editora: Manuela Timofte

de Bogdan Dragoș

parcă mașina în dreptul căii lui de acces, se dădu jos, merse către ușă și bătu. O femeie îi deschise. – Oh, bună, tu trebuie să fi prietena soțului meu. – Aa... ce? – Oh, dar e-n regulă, dragă. Noi suntem așa într-o căsnicie din asta, deschisă. E-n regulă, hai, intră. Încercă atunci să-și amintească vreo altă ipostază în care s-a mai simțit la fel de rușinată și nelalocul ei și nu găsi nimic, renunță, și intră. Femeia închise ușa în urma ei, o încuie, scoase arma și trase. A meritat. Soțul zăcea și el mort în cadă. Împușcat în cap. Iar nevastă-sa i-a folosit telefonul pentru a-i scrie mesaje amantei, chemând-o la ei acasă. Nevasta primi o sentință foarte, foarte scurtă și nimeni n-a contrazis-o în acțiunile sale. A devenit eroina gospodinelor locale, idolul lor, a adevărată inspirație, o celebritate, cineva la care se uitau cu…

▶️ BASA: POUR WHISKEY OVER MY HEART AND SET IT ON FIRE | Bogdan Dragos

BUTUNG IS LAYP | Coconut is Life

Taking a short break from doing translation work and now devouring Bogdan‘s 2020 poetry collection PourWhiskey Over My Heart And Set It On Firewhich carries with it the signature images that scandalizes, tears, and undo me every time. I love how Bogdan’s poetry disturbs the psyche and annihilates moral boundaries that sometimes Boccaccio’s The Decameron comes to mind and marries every heinous psychological thriller film there is. Great afternoon read!

BRILLIANT BLOGGER POET INTERVIEW: PROVOCATIVE DAYDREAMING WITH BOGDAN DRAGOS – PART II

Poetry and Prose of Ken Hume

5. Where did you get the idea for your Daydreaming as a Profession blog site? Was it something you’ve always wanted to do? And how long has it been in existence?
Daydreaming is and was always my favorite activity. And the one I’m really good at (because it happens effortlessly). I’ve been doing it all my life, but never thought I could create something tangible from it.
Now pretty much every poem is the result of daydreaming.
Growing up, I’ve often been told that I daydream too much. The Romanian expressions for daydreaming sound something along the lines of, “to dream with one’s eyes open,” and my personal favorite, “to dream of green horses on the walls”.
Goodness, I can’t recall how many times I’ve heard that in my life. If someone could show me snapshots of my life, 85% of them would probably be of me holding a fixed…
