A new anhedonia by Stuart Buck

A new anhedonia

my first real kiss was with a man I did not know
who took his pants down while I cried and
held me up against the wall behind the shops
I was nine and I felt him against me
as he taught me my body was for giving
to whoever was saddest                       angriest
and that night I ran home to my mother
thinking of the softness of his tongue


Stuart Buck is a poet and author living in north Wales. His debut collection of poetry, Casually Discussing the Infinite, peaked at 89 on Amazons World Poetry chart and his second book ‘I Am Very Far’, will be released on Selcouth Station Press in 2019. When he is not writing or reading poetry, he likes to cook, juggle and listen to music. He suffers terribly from tsundoku – the art of buying copious amounts of books that he will never read.
