A Little Book Haul..

Are book hauls a thing? Like talking about a book you've not yet read? Well I'm going to give it a try- 3 out of this haul are new so worth casting light on them regardless!

bad luck and worse

I wrote a poem- enjoyyy! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I carved your epitaph into our grandest gasp Which broke into waves through arteries and veins.
