Pre-orders are now open for Sybil Lamb’s debut novel I’ve Got A Time Bomb
Prepare yourself, if you can. There’s nothing else quite like it.

On her way home from a gay wedding, the eponymous protagonist is ambushed, beaten, and left for dead on the train tracks. Days later, Sybil awakens in a hospital and finds her skull has been reconstructed, but it quickly becomes clear that her version of “normal” and “reality” may have been permanently altered. When she falls in love with a very beautiful, but very married, actress, Sybil does what comes naturally: she presents the object of her affection with a homemade explosive device, and then abruptly leaves town.
 
I’ve Got A Time Bomb chronicles her surrealistic journey living among the loners, losers, and leave-behinds in the dark corners of Amerika.

Vessel

genderqueerpoetry:

Reshaping a vessel;

Binding a body

he doesn’t belong to.

Attempt to restore

a sense of self

last achieved during

the simplicity of childhood,

replaced by a harsh reality

of labels and boxes.

Mishmash of parts

Lumped together.

Society is a sense of order,

Everything in a place

Regardless of fit.

He is not a cheap,

assembly-line toy

Shipped to your doorstep

in a neatly labelled box.

The label does not read:

"Straight,

Girl,

Poor”

No amount of labels

can transform a person

into a box.

He will never fit,

though he may try

Over

and over,

But how does one

fight their nature?

Deeply ingrained into

their heart and mind,

Deeper than any dose

of nurture,

Any expectation

can reach.

His sex can be

reshaped, but

His gender

cannot be molded.

His gender

simply is.

k.t.b.
