A Sleep

By Alan McCormick & Jonny Voss.


Aw, no women no flesh through talk and walk in looming fancy, all the dogs are gnaw and howlers and moonish prancy, so gripe and groan and rid asunder the leprechaun who mumble us under, and when is goggle and when is ogle and when is boggle, is when stars dip so cacti curl and cats cattle, the railing and the lamppost rattle, and we walk and talk and darkness dreams enough said enough, and we cut up rough and bluff our way to sleep, asleep.


Dogsbodies and Scumsters, a collection of Alan McCormick‘s stories and Jonny Voss‘ illustrations, is available now on Roast Books. See more of their work at Scumsters and Dogsbodies & Scumsters. You can also view an interactive animation by Raimar Oestreich on YouTube based on a Scumster short originally posted on 3:AM in October 2009: ‘Cancer Bob and the YoYo.’
