Review of the Heart of Beckett Long Snout (♡/10) – Amy Lawless and Alessandrelli

The world shrinks for those that own it

and in his mouth something round

and circular, a tennis ball

grown ripe with haggard.

His heart is in his brain

and his brain is in his paws

and his paws are incisors, gnashing

at the world

he lovingly domains over

while relentlessly destroying.

Later he’ll sleep

hard as mahogany, uxorious

sprawl, goddish,

and when he wakes again

the world will be there again,


to remind him of his waking.

He’ll take it

in his mouth, no pain.





Amy Lawless and Jeff Alessandrelli are writers living in the United States of America.
