I spend
so much time
in these words
that it’s
the world
that starts to
sounds like
and it’s the
voices in
my head
that I
listen to.
And they
tell me to
stay here.

Lou Rasmus is an independent author from Chicago, IL. His works are largely focused on exploring the meaning of life โ€“ or lack thereof โ€“ 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.
