Ohp, uhp, oop … okay

Ohp, uhp, oop … okay

to write abstractly
it helps to be stoned; so much
so it feels a crutch.

hip haikus, stanza
formatted. notice: no caps!
it must be for real

this feeling of peace
when I stare through the window
at our wild yard.

no lawnmower knows
this field’s overgrown nature.
it is real untamed.

a grasp on the pipe:
burned up brain pens bad poem,
he stumbles near the end.


Shane Gannaway graduated from Austin College with a B.A. where he double majored in English and Media Studies. His work has appeared in Austin College’s literary magazine Suspension, and the e-zines new wave vomit, Thunderclap Press, and The Molotov Cocktail. He currently resides in Austin, TX where he spends most of his time editing and trying to find representation for his apocalyptic horror novel. Look out for Gannaway’s self-published chapbook debut, The Breaking Wheel
