“Dirt” – prose from Out on the Killing Floor by Kevin Trent Boswell
©2022 Kevin Trent Boswell
This piece of prose is from a book of horror poetry. What is horror poetry? Imagine that Stephen King wrote poetry and prose instead of novels and short stories.
This particular piece is about the climate crisis. It’s an imaginary interview with an American farmer in the not so distant future, a dystopian vision of the runaway effects of climate change.
The book is available here:
– Bleak, dark, dismal apocalyptic poetry of the most depressing possible variety
– The end of all life on Earth & other children’s stories
