Memoirs o7 an Insomniac Cigarette

Memoirs o7 an Insomniac Cigarette

📚 Description

From the unique styling of autobiographical poet, M. Shawn, comes a collection of deeply personal 2AM stories.

Named after the author’s inability to sleep most nights, Memoirs o7 an Insomniac Cigarette is a cathartic work told through rhythm, rhyme, and metaphor written with the quiet company of a little red glow over a shadowy keyboard. M. Shawn’s real life is used as a catalyst for such themes as love, lust, loneliness, sex, shame, loss, addiction, and solitude to paint vivid imagery wherein the author navigates in search of something other than broken promises, and emerges with just enough hope to keep the journey alive.

“ I made a bed of blankets
In the middle of your floor
Parallel to the coffee table
Adjacent to the door
And it rained for three whole days
And then for two it poured
And the TV got too tired, I guess
Or maybe it just got bored
‘Cause, the one working station
Wasn’t anymore ”
– (excerpt) Static, Memoirs o7 an Insomniac Cigarette

⭐ Reviews

by Brenda on M. Shawn

I would recommend this book to others. The more you read the more you will understand what each poem is saying. M.Shawn is a fantastic writer. Once you pick up the book you will not put it down until you read from the first page to the last page , it draws you in . if you have not read it please do so.

by Anthony on M. Shawn

I have read up to “My Bike” and so far, the poems are relatable and gives an insight into the author’s life in ways I am able to understand and relate to M. Shawn as a person, not just a poet. I think that’s what some, and/or most people need in their lives. The only thing that may be difficult for some readers is the way she plays with words, but when it comes to understanding where she is trying to take you inside of herself and her mind, it only made me want to take my time and even reread her stories. I will definitely read more of her work if she writes more.
