There Is No Way We Are Going To Get Out of This Alive

Some men die from prostrate cancer
But all men die with prostrate cancer
There is no way we are going to get out of this alive boys

In the meantime I want to bask in the sun of love
Feel the warmth of a woman pressed against me
I want to be blessed with kisses
With Origin of the world

Magical ways to pass the time
Until prostrate cancer gets us

But never ask if I love you

My origins in art derive from theatre. Theatre is a story telling medium of the human condition. It may be hyper realism or absurd but it is of stories of the human experience. As my career moved from playwriting to prose and poetry I remain committed to the human experience.From the front jacket of the collection of short stores The Naked City by Sterling Silliphant – where a crime of violence and an act of infinite tenderness can occur seconds apart . . . In many respects that is what I am attempting to do with my poems and stories. I am interested in our individual humanity in a harsh and sometimes comical environ. I believe, if there is a god, god is a prankster. How else do we explain genitalia and Donald Trump. Grant Guy is a Winnipeg, Canada, poet, writer and playwright.
