“constant reader” - a list from a semi- found review 
of a collection of semi-autobiographical 
short stories

1/         adorned and imprecise

2/         humourless and sentimental

3/         banal psychological imprecision

4/         familial stories filled with a total
            dearth of expectation

5/         empty fidelities of the body, mind, and conscience

6/         small ultimately meaningless victories
         that allow us to barely withstand 
         the dull thud of this collection
         as it drops from our sleepy, disinterested hands
         from the face to the floor

         thank god it was paperback       or
         it might have broken my nose
