Fat City by Bryn Fortey

Fat
Fat-fat
Don’t want to live in Fat City
Near side
Far side
Don’t like the dark side
Bitter streets
Grey souls
Don’t want to walk here
Don’t want to be here

Fat
Fat-fat
Ain’t no love in Fat City
A look means a leer
Living with fear
Be glad you’re not here
It’s not sweet
Not neat
In Fat City

A veteran of the writing game for more years than he cares to remember, Bryn Fortey edited the well received (at the time) OUTLAW, a post-Beat poetry magazine from the 70s and at the same time had short stories in FONTANA anthologies, among others. After a while away from the literary scene he recently returned with both fiction and poetry acceptances. In 2014 The Alchemy Press published his debut collection MERRY-GO-ROUND, combining short stories and poetry in one book.
