Stabler Hemlock, by Brian Hardie

Brian Hardie is a 24-year-old writer from Portland. He’s been writing poetry since the age of seven, and has been published in a number of small press journals including The Pebble Lake Review (Austin, TX), Conceit Magazine (San Fransisco, CA) and Angel Exhaust (UK). He has also toured the West Coast and Midwest as a musician. He’s currently in the process of writing a book of abstract poetry.

Instead of being text book romantic,
I level the basis of nervous
Contentment, walking a thin
Line synopsis of the Tragic
War between detectives and
Thieves singing
Belches in a new drug scene
Fabricated from the wild
Horse sedative, wallowing
In the dusty mind storms,
stinging the skin. Homicide
Drama begins her song with
A drumbeat.
Bullets and rays
Shot behind strung out eyes
Praise and break bread with all
But the Addictions killer. Sober
Senseless hidden views of Washington
Equally stabilize the loss, lingering as
That possible romantic overdose subsides.
