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
