Submission – by Michael Marrotti


You would’ve


I was attending

a funeral

by the sight

of tears

swelling up

in my eyeballs

This breakup

was unexpected

this death I

could never

have predicted

This life

which was mine

equipped with

altered perception

is now buried

with my dealer

inside that casket

Each day I

slowly rise

from the depths

of that burial

dirty as can be


to get clean

I used to be more

than grey skies

in the forecast

liberated from

flu like symptoms


over obstacles

There was a time

when I would kill

came easy

now with your death

and departure

the resource of

my pleasures

have been beaten

into submission

Insipid Press was founded by Michael Marrotti in 2016. In a digital world of mediocrity where everyone is a writer or editor, the choice to create his own press release seemed like an ingenious idea. The mere thought of splitting profits with someone else who owns their own ISBN number, but uses Lulu or Createspace as a means of production is a desperate choice of absurdity in his opinion. Michael Marrotti can purchase his own ISBN number, and pocket the profits of all his books that sell! All five copies!! Insipid Press is not open for submissions. The writer/editor is far too busy conceiving new material that will be showcased on this blog. Insipid Press will release its first book sometime next year. In the meantime you could be a patron of the underground by purchasing Michael Marrotti's latest book, F.D.A. Approved Poetry.
