Memoirs of an Insomniac Cigarette
by M. Shawn


Overview -

From the unique styling of autobiographical poet, M. Shawn, comes a collection of deeply personal 2AM stories.

Named after the author's inability to sleep most nights, Memoirs o7 an Insomniac Cigarette is a cathartic work told through rhythm, rhyme, and metaphor written with the quiet company of a little red glow over a shadowy keyboard. M. Shawn's real life is used as a catalyst for such themes as love, lust, loneliness, sex, shame, loss, addiction, and solitude to paint vivid imagery wherein the author navigates in search of something other than broken promises, and emerges with just enough hope to keep the journey alive.

" I made a bed of blankets

In the middle of your floor

Parallel to the coffee table

Adjacent to the door

And it rained for three whole days

And then for two it poured

And the TV got too tired, I guess

Or maybe it just got bored

'Cause, the one working station

Wasn't anymore " - (excerpt) Static, Memoirs o7 an Insomniac Cigarette
