A lesson on The Lesser Bohemians

If I wrote. Wrote. About a book in the style of its prose. It would

A book that made me hibernate, devour. And the words rushed through me like bullets. No sleep coffee sip dirty hair repeat. Hangover – from the wine or from the late night crusted eyes sleepy reading.

Fucking and fucked (up)                                 that word fuck that can mean so much.
the curse
the disdain
the insult
the reaction to pain
the word that you moan
the act
when the cunt meets the cock or the tongue or the hand

verb noun adjective adverb

And this book has it all.
