Sometimes You Just Have to Kill ‘em by Bogdan Dragos

watching the rain fall against the window

while listening to

whiskey blues

and thinking about her

and how great it would’ve been if she

were still alive

Only the whiskey is


and the cigarette

and the willpower to admit that

she never existed in the

first place. Not outside the pages of

the book

he was writing


Bogdan Dragos supervises casinos for a gambling company, working twelve-hour shifts locked in a dark office full of TV monitors. There he mostly daydreams and writes poems and stories. He also manages a poetry blog Daydreaming as a profession.

      Sometimes it’s hard to part with characters you read about. It’s the same with characters you write about, apparently.
