J.J. Campbell



contempt

hello
to the
beautiful
woman
that just
walked
in

you
almost
cracked
a smile
when
you
looked
at me

that’s
the kind
of contempt
that tells
me i’m
in love



wasted countless years

i think of the
abused child
still trapped
inside of me

i have wasted
countless years
playing what if

it never turns
out any better

that’s the
saddest line
of them all




J.J. Campbell (1976 - ?) is old enough to know better. He's been widely published over the years, most recently to The Beatnik Cowboy, Yellow Mama, Live Nude Poems, Horror Sleaze Trash and In Between Hangovers. You can find him most days on his mildly entertaining blog, evil delights.
