Biography of Gary Diamond

Self-professed laziest poet alive. Works in short bursts of creativity before getting bored and not writing again for months. Hates 90% of poems submitted here, but knows that the ones he most hates are probably the ones people would actually comment on and score highly.

Influences are Bukowski, Vonnegut, Burroughs, Burgess, Orwell, all the idiots of the world, all the bad landlords and whatever else.

Also a musician, painter and intellectual. Party trick: playing four wine glasses at once.

Published? You've got to be joking.

Have you read anything I've posted here? I can barely string two words together, let alone write a novel or a big book of poetry. Updates


I don't like to go on and on about what I deserve
What I should have, and what I shouldn't be stuck with.
I'm like this because I used to make the effort
Of ten times, nine times it'd fall flat
The other made the mistakes worthwhile.
Gotta learn something while we're here.

It's in my nature to pin hope on this flimsy promise
To attach significance to wonder I can't explain
