Here is a prose poem from The Green Monk. Written in a poorly ventilated, black mold infested room in London, reminiscing about the glory days of the late 90s, bleached hair, bar dips for bigger bums. It is called “Built to Spill.”

“Built to Spill” by Marcus Slease. From The Green Monk (Boiler House Press, 2018).
