Bilete de adio

English version HERE!

MasticadoresRumanía Editora: Manuela Timofte

de Bogdan Dragoș

fiecare ezitare, cât de mică,
ia o mușcătură
din încrederea de sine,
din suflet

până când te trezești
că respiri cenușa
bilețelelor de adio

Respiră adânc

Și începe să-l scrii pe 

Dar ține și bricheta
în caz de orice

Apropo, fii foarte atent la 
să nu te faci de râs în lumea de
când ți-or citi ăștia ultimul

sitting alone on the

orange living room sofa

at 02:21

in the night


trying to feel

something other

than hatred and rage

In older times,

with a younger self,

a book might have


Not anymore

The book she was holding


was one for children

A coloring book

and the pencils were scattered

like fish outside

the water

all about the orange sofa

She was holding only

the gray one

and in the light of a small


began coloring

inside the outlines of

weird characters that

looked like eggs with

hands and legs

and faces

roaming about in what

looked like some cave

Maybe the story

was about their escape

from there

She didn’t bother with


She bothered with struggling

to take her mind

away from

the fact that she could not

fall asleep

“How could I go to

bed?” she wrote…

4779 de pagini digitale umplute
cu sentimente și
pură incoerență

mii și mii de 
greșeli gramaticale

o inimă frântă care
se mănâncă pe sine

un ultim rămas bun care a ieșit
odată demult din gura 
unei foste iubiri 
încă răsunând precum un ecou
în ureche

un stadion întreg de gândaci
și șobolani 
care dau petrecere în casă

o cutie poștală înecata de
facturi neplătite 

camera ei 
un cimitir de sticle goale
ninse cu scrum de țigară 

niciun venit

curentul gata să fie

Golește cea de-a doua sticlă de vin și pe urmă înjură berea pentru că n-are gustul la fel de bun biroul dreptunghiular dinaintea lui arată rotund acum și din scaunul său cresc roți toți gândacii din apartament urcă pe perete și se ascund sub ceasul atârnat într-un cui și încep să miște acele în sens invers multe lucrusi se-ntâmplă, însă povestea care-i stă înainte nu se scrie singură. Hârtia este tot palidă, pixul tot înghețat și următorul cuvânt nu-și mai face apariția, ce să mai vorbim de următoarea propoziție se lasă pe spate și aude demonul cum strigă la el de pe partea cealaltă a geamului îndemnându-l să se grăbească – Da’ nu așa merge treaba cu scrisul, îi șoptește el înapoi. Doar că nici el nu mai știe cum merge treaba de fapt. Așa că se ridică pur și simplu și pășește către fereastră, o deschide…

“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…

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…

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

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

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…
