Gerard Sarnat


Me plus my penniless buddies went to
Bucharest for our bachelor party since
its cost of living's deep down in a toilet.
Shit occurred during the Eighties before
the Soviet Union Warsaw Pact blew up
and before that Romanian Ceaușescu clan
cult of personality couple was executed
on Târgoviște's public plaza for crimes
against humanity including starvation by
a three man firing squad from hundreds
of eager volunteers including some who
possessed flat heads because they weren't
turned, no less had their diapers changed,
as hapless newborns in state orphanages.

Gerry reads "Squares":

Gerard confesses: ""Squares" was inspired by a sequence of stimuli. The opening riffs on a TV show, The Bureau, which portrayed Albania as a pass-through country for people trying to 'disappear.' The ending riffs on what a friend experienced adopting. Since the shape isn’t quite square, maybe the title should be 'Rectangles'! "
