Review of Burning the Evidence by Todd Cirillo

thumb_img_8755_1024

“Todd Cirillo’s, Burning the Evidence, leaves your heart like “hail shattered windshields”. It is broken and beautiful, cynical with a hint of hope and a twist of absurdism, ugly but true. The poems hit you like a .357 Magnum. Some ask questions that others seem to answer. While some poems are almost too honest to bare. One page Todd is “just checking to make sure she’s still there and a few pages down he’s sleeping alone to the sound of tires on wet pavement and the clock”. This glorious, fragmented storyline is so perfectly threaded in highs and lows, heartaches and breaks, goodbyes and come-ons, your head will twist.”

Madeline Levy, PERFUME & CIGARETTES

Happy Birthday, Hank

Bukowski’s Heaven
 
Sitting at Phillipe’s
with a French Dip
and “Run With The Hunted”.
 
In walks
a woman, 
Long legs
in a short skirt.
High heels tighten
every muscle,
while lotion gleams
on smooth tan legs.
Then I remember
your perversion,
 
your womanizing ways
and now,
women from your past
visit 
to scold you.
Walking  
over your grave
in short skirts.
And you,
 
you just lay there
6 feet under,
smiling, 
looking up
into their
pearly gates.
