"I typically hate poets for a number of reasons. 1.) They smell funny. 2.) They spread venereal diseases. 3.) They usually have the personalities of mold and could care less about flesh. Tom Cheshire is not a poet. He is a goddamn human being who writes beautiful words.

I haven’t felt this strong in years." -Scott McClanahan - Writer
