A Sadistic Streak


Poetry. 171 pages. Recommended for Ages 15+.

“there i go
scratching out my face
again
kissing tongues
of fire instead
of love...”

Witty. Unrelenting. Complex. A Sadistic Streak recounts the story of a serial killer and his victims with incisive, dark humor and frequent forays into criticism, satire, and commentary. This collection is surreal, uninhibited, even deranged as it explores topics from television culture to sex to women’s rights through a jaundiced eye. Unusual and unrestrained, steeped-in-black poetry for a cynical generation.
