12 or 20 (second series) questions with Gregory Crosby

Q: What do you see the current role of the writer being in larger culture? Does s/he even have one? What do you think the role of the writer should be?

A: The role of the writer is 1) to write and 2) whatever that writer defines, for themselves, as their role should be. Although whenever I come across this question, I think of Hawthorne: “The ends of literature are, first, the pleasurable toil of writing; second, the gratification of one's family and friends; and, lastly, the solid cash.” (I suppose two out of three’s not bad.)

Boredom-a Very Bad dream- ©2021js
She was bored
So tired of being bored
She joined a motorcycle gang
The application was hard
“Write an essay on someone
I killed”
Gave her a thrill
When she woke the
Next day
Ready for the test
The proctor
A tattoo in his hand
Read “I killed my mom forgive me
She’s dead. “
When you’re tired and bored
She had to say yes
The tattoo man
Read what she said
Girl you are mad but
You passed the test
Where’s your bike?
“I took a train”
He smiled and said
You’re a liar or a Fed
Told him to f**k off
“I came “on my horse”
So he poured her a scotch
Went to her head
Feeling her oats
Said let’s get out of town
“Not with a horse
I’d rather be dead”
She said wipe off that frown
He pointed to his bike
Get on he said
He pushed that thing to 103
Then they went to a bar
Sat on a stool
He said “how do u feel”
Said her ass still hurt
Told him he was her hero
Then he touched her breast
When they rose to dance
Saw the knife in his hand
Then he said
“Sorry dear, soon you will be dead”
Turns out that’s the last thing
He said
She smiled
Took the gun from her purse
Blasted him twice in the head
The cops didn’t come
Maybe she did
Then started for home
And went to bed

(Sing along if you want)
It can be your song
If you’re tired and bored
Join a gang
Learn what you can
Then go to bed

You should never be closed for submissions. Look at the work of Fumihiro Matsuzaki, he goes by the name of matsubrooklyn on Instagram and he works as a picture framer at Pranayama art inc., in Brooklyn His work is stunning and accessible. If you actually look at his work on Instagram you'll know what I mean. It is perfect for a small handheld full color art book. They are to me the visual equivalent of Haiku. What comes to my mind as I look at the work is 'the sound of the brush'.
You should never be closed to submissions, look at the art of Fumihiro Matsuzaki who goes by the name matsubrooklyn on Instagram. He is a picture framer at Pranayama art Inc. He is as close to an untapped genius as I have ever seen. You publish him and you will never regret it.
Hello! My name is Jillian and I'm a social justice poet from Buffalo. Please take a moment to watch my poem . If you like it, feel free to share. Thank you!!
