Once Upon A Time by Ian Lewis Copestick

Once upon a time ;
I had a 28 inch waist
I could fuck all night without a break
I could work all day, and didn't ache

Everything is more than I can stand

Please
Give me back some energy
Let's make love tenderly
Give me some objectivity
Help me enjoy being me




Ian Lewis Copestick is a 48 year old writer (I prefer that term to poet ) from Stoke on Trent, England. I spend most of my life sitting,  thinking then sometimes writing. I have been published in Anti Heroin Chic, the Dope Fiend Daily, Outlaw Poetry, Synchronized Chaos, the Rye Whiskey Review, Medusa's Kitchen and Horror Sleaze Trash.
