I'm Antisocial, Coffee Never Lies, by Mallory Smart
Originally sold as a two part collection, available now in a single volume!
"I’m Antisocial, Coffee Never Lies” is an insolent toddler wading through the pool of social awkwardness, gender dynamics, and over caffeinated nights spent at Starbucks. Mallory Smart presents this not as a collection of individual poems but more as an incomplete thought that just keeps wandering through space. In the days following her decision to quit her day-job and become a writer, Mallory found herself on the other end of strange interaction whilst sipping on coffee. This is an analysis of that, which constantly begs the question: why are people just so freaking weird?
i don’t wanna fall asleep
wake up and realize i’m
dead. i once read on a
coffee beverages’ sleeve: “life is short, stay awake for it”
