distinguished souls

 

by J. J. Campbell

 

 

 

night

swimming

with the

distinguished

souls in a

lazy river

at the end

of november

 

there were

rumors that

there was a

dead body

out in these

parts

 

plus,

we had

a case

of beer

that was

begging

to be

demolished

 

there’s a rope

hanging from

an old tree

 

it’s for

swinging

i suppose

 

 

J.J. Campbell (1976–?) is trapped in suburbia and plotting his escape. He's been widely published over the years, most recently at In Between Hangovers, Horror Sleaze Trash, Rusty Truck, Midnight Lane Boutique, and Synchronized Chaos. You can find him most days on his mildly entertaining blog, evil delights, (http://evildelights.blogspot.com).
