Tao Lin

Posted by Alex Bec,

Tao Lin is an author / poet from Brooklyn and his work is fantasticly honest and beautifully observed. Here is verse one of ‘A Poem Written By A Bear’

Let me go eat some salmon
Why are there coke cans in the river
What if i wore a bullet proof vest during hunting season
I’m a bear; I walk in the forest and look at the river and the river is cold
I saw campers today and they ran away and I was alone and I destroyed their tent
