Jasper Kerkau Reading “I am a F#cking Writing” at SD’s Showcase 8/19

Sudden Denouement held its first showcase on August 19th in Houston. The event included a night of sonic power and lush sounds from: Housing Crash, Uffizi, Super Robot Party, The Thief and the Architect, and My Twilight Pilot. We had several wonderful writers indulged the crowd,  including Chris Wise, Matt Jackson, Jasper Kerkau, and Dustin Pickering from Transcendent Zero Press. It was a magical evening of shoegaze and poetry. In a hot, overcrowded room, something very special happened, a convergence of numerous poets and musicians all interconnected, displayed their craft and created a night that all parties involved will cherish. More videos forthcoming.

Nobody Screams – SRP

sick of all of the apologies

i can’t read anymore

of the rhetoric

cause it started to make me sick

guess I’m just another lunatic

start to smoke 

but then i quit

started posing

now I’m bored

I’m too old to give a shit

pretend not to notice

and have a fit

another spineless hypocrite

i don’t know if anyone listens

maybe nobody even listens

i don’t mind if anyone cares

i don’t believe in all the lameness

unsubscribe to all

the bullshit

clean up my act

&learn how to 

smile

just another handshake scene

i get lost in the dream

wish it was mostly make believe

stabbed in the back

nobody screams

Burning at the Stake – SRP
when you’re sure in your ways
no one can tell you
the truth
and we’re right at all costs
as desperation sets in
when I’m cornered and pinned
is when you feel no shame
you look unsure of yourself
let me give you a hand
let me open the door
help me to understand
when I’m engulfed in the blaze
no one will tell you why
and we’ve struggled and lost 
desperation’s a friend
and they are smiling at me
because
its the 
end

One More Time-SRP

A Forum for Divergent Literature

My heart is torn in two

it’ll eat you alive if you let it

let it take you

let it take you away

Within my dreams

it can drag you down if you let it

let it take you

let it take you away

All the lights have gone out

and a new day fades don’t forget it

it will take you

let it take you away

I had this dream where I fall

and I can’t get back up again

just acquaintances there

and nobody knows who you are

The dust on the floors have settled

to soot

it’ll swallow you whole and

you’ll never come back

you let it take you

take you away

you let it

don’t you

it’s hard to believe – SRP
can’t seem to get up from this chair
as the walls crumble to the ground
the christmas lights still shine like stars
all around
slowly start to blur
i remember that thing you said to me
your voice echoes in my head
a haunting dream
slowly bleeding
we start to die
you died
looking back at the years that
passed us by
its like living in a dream
its like we’re living a dream
living in a dream
seeing how it used to be
can’t believe all the imagery
never mind the in-between
today its just you
and
me

Eating Away to the Bone – SRP


stick to yourself afraid of what could happen

 

when I’m cornered

 

what i may do

 

scared of what you make me do

 

the things I’ve done

 

the things I’ve said

 

why does it always end this way

 

why does it have to be so sad

 

why do i hurt so bad

 

eating myself from the inside out

 

black cancer growing inside of me 

 

i feel less everyday

 

numb

 

nothings shocking anymore

 

exhausted i havent slept for days

 

deprivation

 

self loathing

 

all day

 

every day

 

never ending
