red eyes
are nothing
but a way
to hide
from everything
that I don’t want
to see
Nothing but
a diguise,
like a mask
or some shit.
And I like it
that way.

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. Ah, a dose of non-bullsh*t. Refreshing.
    When I was growing up we had an albino rabbit with red eyes.
    You’re not that rabbit in “disguise” are you Lou?
    Have a great day.

  2. There’s a ying to your yang. Your red eyes prevent others from seeing you as you truly are. I’m fairly confident there’s a sensitive dude behind this drunk degenerate, but I’m not sure. And what would it mean to me anyway?

      1. As long as your single you can “not give a fuck.” When a woman finally worms her way into your life, that’ll change my degenerate friend, that’ll change. Until then, live carefree for the rest of us.
