A Thousand Yards Away By J.J. Campbell

broken souls
rambling down
yellow brick roads
full of discarded

all the while,
the love of your
life is six feet
under

patiently waiting
for something other
than worms to visit
her each night






About J.J Campbell:

J.J. Campbell (1976 - ?) was raised by wolves yet still managed to graduate high school with honors. He's been widely published over the years, most recently at Dodging The Rain, Synchronized Chaos, Horror Sleaze Trash, Fourth & Sycamore and The Beatnik Cowboy. His most recent chapbook, the taste of blood on christmas morning, was published by Analog Submission Press. You can find him most days waxing poetic on his mildly entertaining blog, evil delights.
