Consumed

By Chris Bunton I remember in poverty,eating ramen noodles,daily. Beans and Weenies.Meatless saucespaghetti. Rice, Rice, Rice,without any realspice. Bologna Sandwiches.Hamburger Helpermixes.

The cheapest smokes.Always gotta havethose. Colon cancer, Rectal cancer,lungs andbrain. A hole tooContinue reading “Consumed”

Cell Block Sounds

by Chris Bunton I was locked up in prison,on an aggravated charge.I had stabbed a man like me,another tough guy, just like me.
