I like listening
To the radio,
It always plays
Something upbeat,
Something souless
That I can hear
On repeat,
Something loud
That makes me
Stomp my feet.
I like the radio,
Because it gives
Me a brief moment
To stop thinking
About wanting to
Fucking kill myself.

Lou Rasmus is an independent author from Chicago, IL. His works are largely focused on exploring the meaning of life – or lack thereof – while the themes of love, relationships, and self-loathing are also central to many of his stories. His upcoming novel, Primrose Isle, will be his third self-published title. Grapefruit Juice, a collection of bitter poems and short stories, and DEAD RED FISH, his semi-autobiographical debut novel about a young man coming to age on a road trip with his childhood friends, are also available on Amazon.

  1. I like that you write and vent that stuff. I like radio too. I like Lou. I will die without you and my DG poetry fix. A raw but real narration on the human condition. Will you feel better if you change the last line around a bit and put the first word last?
