The very lovely ladies at Sex+Design Magazine asked me to take part in the very first Red Light Lit: Erotic tales told by folks you wouldn’t kick out of bed. I’m honored and excited to read a few poems from the book of poetry I’ve been (very slowly) working on for years. One of my favorites is this one which I’ll be reading on Sunday night:

italian girl in dublin

i love your tiny breasts
and the way they come to rest
on me when were naked and trying to catch our breath
and lying here beside you
makes me feel like I am special
cause we are both so lonely from following our devils
but lets not talk of things we’ve done
or lives we could’ve changed
lets just stay here whispering
and listening to the nighttime irish rain

i traced your giant scar
from your belly to your sternum
but didn’t ask you questions cause I was sure you always heard ’em
and you explained it anyway
a car wreck in the rain
said doctors took an organ but you don’t know its english name
then you pointed to my beer belly
said none of us are perfect
i laughed out loud and kissed your neck
and we began another circuit

i watched you from the bed
while you smoked out of the window
and thought you looked like someone from a 1920’s photo
all you wore were black socks
black thong and black turtleneck
the curtain partially covering you as you finished your last cigarette
then you came back to the bed
pulled down the covers and got in
i’ll always remember that night and you
my italian girl in dublin

Anyways, Sunday is going to be pretty incredible and the lineup is dope. It’s described as “a sophisticated evening exploring love, lust, desire, sex and sensuality in the form of prose, poetry and song.” Yes please! You can get all the info right here. I look forward to seeing you at Viracocha!

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
