  4. Scott C. Holstad:

    I want people to wail, gnash their teeth, beat each other with words when they read my poems, all guns death drugs despair, life as I know it and live it and want it to be. I want people to read my poetry and try not to puke, vomit, cry. Poetry exists to disturb, punish, torment—show what’s real, man. Shudder wild beauty, for this is a fantastic freakshow, ain’t my garden of flowers and love, pity, and grandeur. I don’t wish to kill poetry, but to blow it through the roof—til the last junkie’s dead, til the matrix has gotten us all, til we’ve hung overdoses on the edge, the words, the poem.

I don't think I could stand it, locked up like that in my own psyche. I'd collapse into myself, I'd implode
