Biography

BRAND-NEW E-BOOK BEING RELEASED JULY 4TH, 2018! Rhyme King. Second to None. The Reason Lyrics will Persist into the Future. Check the Diction Wannabe Experts. Bring your best so I can top it. All poems part of this blog have previously been published and can be found in Big Sal's debut anthology, or other works soon to be released. Allais may be known across the spectrum as a cultivator of holorhyme, but Big Sal will be known as the Master Vintner that made it 200-proof. Read more below if you truly prefer your poetry to rhyme. Influences include but are not limited to: Sadistik, Grieves, Brother Ali, Slug, Pablo Neruda, classic/cult filmography, and most things in life that rhyme more than 3 words within them, you simply have to find what they are. Remember, rhyme was originally thought to have been invented to retain information, lyrics, etc. Why you rhyme bro??? "Just sitting here listening to Atmosphere and Rhymesayers, trying to make ends meet." "If at first you don't succeed, then fuck it, sit down and write a poem about it." "Intellectualism is not measured by the words that you spit or the shit that you say, but by the feathers on the perch to wit with the six-pack today." "I love it when pretentious poets pretend that wakefulness as a human being signifies their true descent into madness." "Laughing my ass off watching Mac Lethal impersonate Kanye." "I'd rather skewer them in the heart than shoot them in the skull." "If I had as many followers as Trump, I'd be famous AND stupid." "I could tell you to kill a cat or to apply some poison, and would know you wouldn't do either until I opened the box to check." "Squeeze the citrus fruit to get its juice, but leave the dew be by morning." "I find the best quotes are often better if put into rhymes first." "Smart people advance society, and stupid people simply govern it." "If the body is a temple, then a mind is the mountain it solely rests upon." "Those that can - rhyme, and those that can't, bitch about it." "Learning to rhyme is like playing chess: yes even children can do it, but only the most ardent of thinkers can master it my friends." "Help save a species and support the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the Sea Shepherds, or any other animal welfare organization willing to put themselves in harms way for the betterment of the world where others wouldn't. Or don't, and be just like every other prick detrimental to the survival of our fragile planet." "Your greatest mistake is believing that you know enough already." "If you throw trash in my yard, don't be surprised when I shit in yours." "With all the pretension on here, it's a wonder you can't throw a stone and hit diversity." "Politics aside - can't we all agree that birds are great?" "How can you expect to walk a bed of nails if you've never had a thorn in your foot?" "Kanye wants to be president, and the president wants to be Kanye's dumb ass." "Saying addiction is a disease is like saying Ben Affleck is really a bank robber because you don't know shit about movies." "Plagiarize my words at your own risk, but nothing stays hidden forever cowards." "Drone strikes kill kids and spooks lie about it." "I'll never win Poem of the Week because I won't succumb to mediocrity, haha." "You can give me a dollar to care, and it still wouldn't be enough." "I turn my swords inward and my guns toward the seas." "I truly wish there was enough time in a day to tell these pretentious poets just how much they suck." "I'm not here to be your friend. I'm here to learn enough before I die." "Right-wingers and Nazis like to talk shit on camera until they get punched in the fucking face." "Say my name out loud enough times and I may show up to your town like Candyman." "Give a bigot a platform and they'll take the city, but give them a gun and they'll take a bullet." "If you're resistant to truth you may be an idiot, but if you have to bring it up you're probably pretentious." "I'd rather watch The Lion King instead of reading Hamlet any day of the damn week." "You'd think posting pictures of guns online would make you seem tough, until everyone realizes what a sad sack you really are." "I started posting on this site to gain recognition, but now I think I'll stay just to piss you all off." "If prettying up words per say were shit from a bull, then you talentless hacks that think so are gutless capons." "Don't build a wall up, and then get mad at me when I can't find the door." "If you're such a saint with a gun, take your ass down to Mexico and fight the cartels tough guy." "Beware - pretentious poets are everywhere and hiding underneath every rock waiting to be called on their dumb shit." "Citing poetry to prove poetry is not poetry is as fucking stupid as writing on the discussion boards to prove how smart you are genius." - BIG SAL QUOTES

Samples

SAY IT ALOUD Who might just woe and bleed when hunkered down with time upon us where there’s a scene switched? You like your poetry watered down, but I’m the strongest there is to drink bitch, Who wants some aqua with their shots when the chips are down and the start of it is a breeze? Two parts of vodka on the rocks with the rest poured out on the argument of disease, Go break your backs when as seamless as a sonnet or timid prose writing like a phonic rap, Don’t make me laugh like when elitists comment on women most likely to comment back, Fucking up on the thin trees and mews as an egret with the sway coming, Suck it up when the wind breathes on you so you read it but you say nothing, Busy on the lam and obviously hates that it takes a book with the cedars thinning, Living for the scam but posthumously praised like they gave a fuck while we were living, Grace their plates with aphids next as psychos eat it and undress the naked kid, Save your praise and save your breath, I don’t need it unless I take a shit, Having fun I’m asking ‘em whose the greatest of them all? Acid tongue when lapping up truths and praise the sun of Senegal, Take your trips, place your bets, and call it all the grandest day, Make the list, ace the test, and maw to maw as the cameras sway, You like love poems and the occasional ballad one-liner, Despite one good one where your own appraisal sells its dumb rhymer, When there’s smoke and whiplash to bleed from concussions the sonnet is a rap with the best words, Then there’s those that sit back and read the discussions only to comment and act like an expert, Tu conmen y whiners take the glass to pour the rum last somewhat, You wannabe writers make me laugh more than dumb ass Trump does, Sing the song in heavy lore except now I too would blanket clouds with the rain stopped as then Rainier poured, If I wanted any more shit out of you I’d scrape it out with a chainsaw and a waferboard, I’ll catch their shit with their blast and hits like a masochist on a crucifix in the basement too, So class dismissed you fascist pricks with passive shtick and a stupid bitch with the placement true. ____________________________________ BRAND NEW E-BOOK SET TO BE RELEASED JULY 4TH, 2018! GET YOUR RHYME ON PEOPLE! ________________________________ Welcome to the Show, Check Yourself at the Door. . . The following poem was submitted to the Wolverhampton 2018 Poetry Competition, but was not shortlisted: ________________ OUT OF DARKNESS: Bound by a necktie in a Columbian gravestone, A spacious town in this madness found its pieces, Found where the death lies like if Northumbrian age-old, A spaceship bound for the gaseous clouds of Venus, Twice the memory knows Man is mad if the flattery is passionate, Souls laugh at no fears if a hand holds pressure to the lineman's candle, Life and energy go hand-in-hand like a battery with acid, Hold back those tears like a black hole tethered to a diamond anvil, Racist troops shift to shout the chorus if the fire is white as storms or a priest's lucidity, Makeshift hubris and out of darkness entirely light is borne of diseased fluidity.

HI Big Sal

thanks for your like on Madame Fortuna. This went up last week on Poems and Pictures, a picture library that will take poems to go with images, if you can find the right one... http://www.maryevans.com/poetryblog.php?post_id=8122

Hi Big Sal, thanks for your note on i-museum revisited. That's a very interesting interpretation, thank you. For some context, here's the first one:

Come and see the i-museum.
No curtains, no blinds, no nets. Blinding sometimes.
The exhibits change day to day.
Who seeks comfort in the linear?
The building disappears if you enter it in anger.
The floors withdraw, the walls collapse.
You can only visit if your eyes are smiling.

There is no Authority, it’s self-policing.
Less trouble that way. More responsibility.
If you don’t maintain a peaceful equilibrium,
the building disappears around you.
Though sometimes, if you get a rage on inside,
the ceilings ignite.
Depends on the rage.

In the foyer, there’s a framed photo of a small girl
smiling with her mouth.
The photo is black and white.
The dress is pink and hated.

The first room has cartoon-like cakes,
bursting out the tops of their wrappers.
Sumptuous, exciting, begging to be eaten.
You can’t, of course.
If you try, the building disappears around you.

The musical room contains a gnawed wooden recorder.
It smells of pre-pubescent spit, sweaty fingers, and school.
To open the door of the musical room, take a deep breath,
and hold it.
To exit, do this in reverse.
Do not touch the handle.
The door will slam onto your fingers.
You will breathe in.
Entropy will ensue.

In the café there’s a radiogram,
locked within a nicotine-stained glass case.
No money required.
The turntable revolves around levels of memory.
78s will play if opening bars of songs are sung.
If you sing too loudly, the shellac cracks
and the glass case fills with smoke.

The reading room contains 5 books,
which have been read approximately 50 times each.
The spines are broken.
If you pick them up, pages fall out,
and the building disappears around you.
Leave the books alone. Get your own.

There’s a flat-chested Sindy doll in that room over there,
with shorn hair and home-made clothes.
A stolen Action Man keeps Sindy company,
and they mostly fight or fuck.

In the cellar, there’s a well of tears,
soon to boil and dry.
And all the implements you’d ever need
to raise weals on a small girl.
There are curtains down there that are permanently closed,
so people can’t see in.

That was fun, wasn’t it?

Wasn’t it?

Thanks for your response to 'War Kids'. I don't usually put out such rough work, but the concept has been niggling at me for years. In so many 'news reports' on TV, I can see myself and my friends; and we were never in the extreme danger that the TV children deal with daily.
