Dead Star Paradigm
The worst book I ever read was written by me a long time ago when I thought I knew. Now I know and scribe from that. Freed from the strangle holds and flooded plain. Freed from perceived isonomy. Knowing the horse has left the barn and I'm riding roughshod. Bareback. An aged horse watching the fillies. The worst book I ever read took me years to plagiarize. So blame yourselves that it didn't sell. I tried to add an action scene but you stayed hesitant. Unsure. As if the plans you made were really meant to buoy you forward. As if the sad song of trains was your only hit. As if Colossus barred the door. That's right. The worst book I ever read wasn't a book at all but a confession. A lengthy screed you told in the dark. A meek animal adventure w/commercials about inventing things and how to double your order if you order now. Free shipping w/o delay. The worst book I ever read was written before I practiced the moral code. When I still harkened back to old tv for the password. When I could still discern hunger from envy. Good from evil. Love from lust. In the worst book I ever read we all played a part. Sought a leaner scenery. Midwifed twins from poisoned mothers. Horded horsepower and coin. Watched the choppers dark the sky.
