I Got Drunk and then Poetry Mark Petersen read online review & book description:

These poems were composed while having drinks downtown, enjoying the college-town local nightlife often with a typewriter and sometimes with an ink-pen and a Moleskine notebook. I let myself go, and I wrote a few gems and a whole lot of crap.
I have chosen the gems and applied Hemingway’s advice: “write drunk, edit sober”. My raw poetry was rife with typos and holes and I needed to edit it to make it clear and coherent. But I also didn’t want to overcook it; in my editing I strove to keep each poem faithful to the original so that the emotion and drunkenness would be maintained.

    It's exactly what you'd expect a free book of drunk poetry to be like.

    Something I admire about reading and writing is the pure honesty behind it. I’m intrigued with the way you made me feel knowing my altercations with alcohol. The simplicity behind your words spoke BIG amounts of truth and I very much so enjoyed your sets of words.
  • Amazing book

    Well done! Thoroughly enjoyed every word! Each and every random thought! I am somewhat shall we say on in years and have been writing the same 4 books that have yet to be published. One is my autobiography. Quite a humdinger that one is! I am well educated but that doesn’t necessarily mean common sense. In life or love or my love life ha! I ramble. ... I digress. For that matter the point of this note is to let you know that you have inspired me young man. I think you are a young man. I don’t remember. My memory is gone. You’ll have to buy the book to see why. I need more than that 5 bucks that you bought your beer with as my palate is a bit more refined. I jest. I do hope that this note finds you well and blessed. My regards.
