"I TAKE EVERY FOUR LETTER WORD FOR GRANTED"
Poems by Christopher M. Kubick and Art by Andrew Paszel


   A whirlwind holds
  court
   D A I L Y
  Listen it's
         called
          My
          own worst 
 enemy


=======================================================


                                       These  hurdles cerebral gymnastics I
             lag Heavy Heart
               weighs me bound


=======================================================


                                All
                               my life I continually 
                                clad awkwardly under
                              my skin


====================================================


                Life won't prepare
                 you
                    To be prepared for
                   life   Be
                prepared to learn this


---------------------------------------------------------



    My Lovee endures
   this tragic mess
    I
   bare
   daily
           So so sorry


===========================================================
            

                 I was 
               never destined
                      to fail
              Only
          to overcome       then
                     lose


========================================================


            Enough has been lost
            Strong me 
               Strong me 
                  strongly fo-
                          wardly 
                     I rock life


=============================================================








Christopher and Andrew were both born in Queens, NY. Together they shared an apartment on College Point Blvd, while at the same time they were in the NYC hardcore punk rock band Yo!Scunt. Both were going through a dark period in their lives. This collaboration reflects on that period.
