Poetry of James Brown
As a warning: there may be obscene language or graphic visions in these poems. ie... not for young kids.
Heh, don't be distressed, I am perfectly fine.
I often find it easier to write about the painful things. The
beautiful things I usually paint. These poems often reflect half truths -
exaggerations of real life experiences. (For example, I am neither
a heroine addict nor a schizophrenic. I think.) So take them for what
they are: works of art and feeling - hopefully an interesting description of
the world around us. Enjoy.
