Relax Responsibly - Colin Dodds

Relax Responsibly they say


Hump the corpse of all you ever truly cared for responsibly

In the ashes of your hopes responsibly

Mock your own drawn-out, pain-drenched death responsibly

Eat your screaming children’s guts responsibly

While weeping stinging, inconsolable tears, responsibly

And orgasming without any plausible human excuse, responsibly

Fuck your mother, you ad-writing shits, responsibly



About the Author

Colin Dodds grew up in Massachusetts and completed his education in NYC. He is the author of several novels, including WINDFALL and The Last Bad Job, which the late Norman Mailer touted as showing “something that very few writers have; a species of inner talent that owes very little to other people.” Dodds’ screenplay, Refreshment, was named a semi-finalist in the 2010 American Zoetrope Contest. His poetry has appeared in more than 180 publications, and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Colin lives in Brooklyn, NY, with his wife Samantha.
