Under The Callous

I wrote another book! I am self-publishing another book!

My love of poetry, prose, and rambling seems to grow each year. This is ~100 pages of my rawest self and my most vulnerable points of view. This book has poetry, prose, stories, abstractisms and realisms and some of the most gratifying and terrifying truths I have faced in myself so far.

It is a work of deep labour and love that goes beyond the written word; and I mean that in an even bigger sense than just metaphorically. This book will also be available to purchase in a package which will include personalized sensory objects to bring you into the full experience of Under the Callous. The full experience of this version of myself.

I FEEL I’M MADE OF
HUES OF BLUE
LIKE KRISHNAS DEEP SKIN
MY JEANS WORNS IN
THE WALLS OF MY LATE TEENHOOD.
THE BLUE OF MY FAVOURITE BOWLS
MY FATHERS TOLD-YOU-SO’S
& MY MOTHERS LYING EYES.
THE BLUE OF MY BLOOD
IN THE PRIVACY OF MY VEINS,
ALL OF THE RAINS
THAT CLEANSE MY SORROW:
THE COLOUR OF THE INK
FROM THE LETTER A LOVER LEFT ME.
THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE SUN SETTING
SATISFIED.
TO THE DIM OF HIM RISING SOMBER.
OF THE MOON WITH HER PALEST GLOW
IN THE OCEAN ILLUMINATED.
HER INSOMNIATIC SLEEPS IN THE
CORNFLOWER BLUE OF MID-DAYBREAK.
SO MANY HUES OF BLUE
AND NONE OF THEM
LOOK GOOD ON YOU.

“ENTRY 21” – Under the callous – forest greenwell – 2019

This has been in the works since I published my last book. A collection of the past 2.5 years and it’s lessons, people, places and feelings.

All the work from the cover art to the words inside is done entirely by me. Some may call this crazy – I would agree. But I’m nothing if not dedicated.

Available in Winter 2019, I’m taking on pre-orders now until February 1st, 2019.

ORDER FORM

Thank you for your support and thank you for your patience! I will get back to you ASAP with order details and billing. Book will be ready by mid-February and shipped before the end of February.

*all packages are made individually and based on price. It is PWYC so that it is an accessible option for those that want the experience while also making sure I cover all costs.
