Portnoys Complaint by Phillip Roth

This is a book which is cheerfully unrepentant and scatological. There are many descriptions of laxatives and furtive yet pathological masturbation sessions but underneath is a humane, generous story.It’s funny, glib, capturing adolescent male anxiety with an uncomfortable accuracy which made me recall my own teenage years. This was Roths first book and it revels in its iconoclastic glee.

I loved the nervy prose, but didn’t wholly lose myself in the book. There were relatable, uniquely masculine moments but I’ve found too much of it employed the grotesque to make it more personal for me.

One to admire rather than love.

Autograph

I signed my first book today.

It looks gorgeous and I’m proud of it. It is a surreal and lovely experience to hold a physical object which represents something which began as idea.

My book Until She Sings is out now.

Kiss Your Bones

I’m not the animal groom

Seeking to keep you in one place

Frozen forever

No, I drag your bones from

The depths

Hold them to my skin

Lend some warmth

Until a heart flowers

Skin breathes

And you become,

Supple, playful,

Back arched to receive

And I will shower you

In glistening filth

Awash with disreputable

Celebration

Driving Me Mad

Grounded by the weight of the

Unresolved lust

Slow and heavy

Almost adolescent with irritated

Acceptance

Coiled and ready to bite

Spit and clutch until

The poison drains away

Never more alive than when

I lean into my hunger

Bend you over and make you gasp

Raw and impolite

As ever, gentle ferocity

And clumsy with release

I struggle to breathe with it

Aware and awake,

Sullen animal with your scent in my nostrils

And, baby girl, it’s driving me

Mad.

AFTER WORK

‘Hello.’ I said.

‘Hey.’ David┬ásaid.

I smiled as I held the phone to my ear as I swiped my pass card then opened the door.

‘How was it?’ he said.

‘Honestly?’ I said.

‘Yes.’ he said.

He almost sounded amused. Continue reading

a study in tension

what the sight and sound

scent of you feeds

the absence of it

done as much from consideration

i mean

you’re into the idea of it

but life is abrasive

it wears you down

but i am wired

built around

upon a foundation of wild appetite

not furtive but i sit with it

the release i seek

pin you down

tear you to throbbing pieces

with the unadulterated force of it

but you are safe

the washes of day keep my actions

clean as a priest’s hands

but the night will come

and i will, not reach,

but

take
