"it's going to be bad this time"
With a gleeful rejection of poetic convention, Kurt Lee (formerly known as kurt) explores the fantastic world of the human imagination. His poems and stories are abstract, and seem to weave around their topics randomly. In reality, one can see that he's carefully and precisely giving our subconscious minds access to concepts which our rational minds would reject. We are pleased to present his works here.
Kurt says, "I have been writing most of my life, since grade school. I dropped out of high school my senior year and joined the working class, attempting numerous unsuccessful relationships with various people, and going from job to job. I've always admired bad writing, finding that it displays the frailty and virtual helplessness of life in so many ways. I live in Akron, Ohio. Amoung my list of influences are Iceberg Slim, Bukowski, Beckett, Kerouac, and Fante." Kurt doesn't quite remember his favorite quote, but it has something to do with bad writing or true writing and may have been by Bukowski. You can write to him at email@example.com.
