Hamsters

All of the
hamster wheels
we’re taken
at hamster camp
this morning.
It’s that time
of year
I guess,
when everyone
decides that
they want to
squeeze
one more year
out of life,
like they
suddenly deserve it.
Too bad it’s not
their decision.

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. Another year is a foreign concept for me, it’s a bitter pill for some to swallow for most, but I like it that way (I am talking about the foreign concept not the swallowing FYI). – or am I? Sorry, I’m being kind of a retard tonight. :)H
