A Poet’s Advice

A Poet’s Advice

By D.S. Jones

I don’t believe in myself 

the young writer says


I bet you don’t believe in society either

I tell him

he tears away the seal on a fresh pack of cigarettes

and realizes his smoking is a form of luxury

he is happy to kill himself

in such a dignified way

I wipe my mouth and tell 

him we at least have something in 


and we walk through the woods on our way,

both exhaling the primitive beautiful

smoke of life surrounding us

Poems by D.S. Jones are available to read in Painting Lines On The Highway To Hell. Available now exclusively for Kindle. 

Midnight or Later: New eBook Available Now

A girl runs away from home and into the arms of pornographers. A man released from prison drives across the country to save his daughter’s life. A foul-mouthed mobster rats out his business partners and pays the price. Plenty of guns get fired and dicks (detectives) get kissed. Midnight or Later is an eclectic mix of Pulp Fiction, Erotica, and Sci-Fi. Originally slated for release in 2014, this chronicle of early work from enigmatic author D.S. Jones is only available at Amazon.com.
