HOLE IN THE MIDDLE

ABSURDIST LITERATURE, MARCUS SLEASE POETRY, the spirit of the bathtub

In 2012 I was living in Katowice, Poland. One of my favorite days was national donut day. It is a big deal in Poland and in Poland the donuts are very good. They are maybe my favourite donuts in the whole world. There really isn’t a hole in a Polish donut. You have to make your own hole. It is, however, a little round. But not as round as the prefab donuts in other countries. It is more imperfect, less round. There is no real round in nature. The Polish donut is closer to real nature. It is very filling.

Happy national Polish donut day!!

 

THE SPIRIT OF THE BATHTUB

MARCUS SLEASE POETRY, NOMADIC SURREALISM, the spirit of the bathtub

My nomadic travels in South Korea, Utah, Turkey, Italy, Poland, and London. From 2009-2015. A kind of spiritual book, but not the hokey kind. There is lots of imagination. Bring your own walking stick.

short poems by Ben Stainton

ABSURDIST LITERATURE

THEY ARE VERY GOOD. THEY SOMETIMES REMIND OF RICHARD BRAUTIGAN AND EVEN MORE MIKE TOPP. BUT THEY ARE NOT. THEY ARE BEN STAINTON PLUS WHO KNOWS WHAT. LOTS OF THINGS. THESE POEMS MAKE ME FEEL MORE FLUID. I LIKE FEELING FLUID. IT IS BETTER THAN FEELING SOLID. FLUIDS RULE. SOLIDS THINK THEY RULE. THEY DO NOT. I AM ALL FOR FLUIDS.
