Guest Author: Ingrid Jennings (giveaway)

Greeting everyone, thanks for taking the time to read about Slopjar. Slopjar is a book of poetry that was created to enter the souls of these that read it. There are seven chapters in the book and it is because seven is the number of completion. Each chapter begins with the letter L. There is a chapter about love, loneliness, lust, Lucifer, Lord, laughter, and one titled lunatic. Each chapter moves thought the life of a woman and she is dealing with all of the chapter titles.

Many people have asked me, “What is a slopjar and why did you name your book Slopjar?”.

A Slop jar also known as a chamber pot is a pail used as a toilet to urinate or defecate in. They were used long ago before there were toilets. I choose this name for my book because the book is a storm of emotion, some good but most are the filthy thoughts of a mad woman looking for salvation. With that being said read the poem Slopjar taken from the book:

 

SLOPJAR

Piss out the piss,
shit out the shit,
simmer it,
in a slopjar.
Release all frustrations,
lay them to rest,
simmer them,
in a slopjar.
Simmer the lunatic thoughts, the loneliness, the laughter, the lust, the love, the
feelings of hurt and pain.
Simmer it all in a slopjar,
then throw it in the woods.
