Maggie Estep Poems
Liner Notes - (From Love Is A Dog From Hell) Emotional Idiocy is obviously a theme close to my heart since I seem to use the phrase in novels and CDs alike. My friend and mentor of sorts, Andrew Vachss, upon hearing me read a rendition of this poem, stated that it ought to be the theme song for borderline personality disorder. He's right.
The Stupid Jerk I'm Obsessed With
The stupid jerk I'm obsessed with stands so close to me I can feel his breath on my neck
Bad Day At The Beauty Salon
I was a 20 year old unemployed receptionist with dyed orange dreadlocks sprouting out of my skull. I needed a job, but first, I needed a haircut. So I head for this beauty salon on Avenue B. I'm gonna get a hairdo.
Liner Notes - (from No More Mister Nice Girl) I was having a foul day. Some geezer harrassed me on the street and I got completely bent out of shape, but the guy was huge so I just stuffed my retort. Went home to drink coffee. No milk. I ripped through the cupboards and found Non Dairy Creamer. It tasted like shit. I got into one of those senseless rages where you throw stuff. I hurled the Non Dairy Creamer and it fell into the tub where I was running some bath water. The creamer erupted and made this bathing gel of Non Dairy Creamer. I was ready to kill myself. Instead I wrote Hey Baby.
Scab Maids On Speed
My first job was when I was about 15. I had met a girl named Hope who became my best friend. Hope and I were flunking math class so we became speed freaks. This honed our algebra skills and we quickly became whiz kids. For about 5 minutes. Then, our brains started to fry and we were just teenage speed freaks. Then, we decided to to seek gainful employment.

I'm an Emotional Idiot
so get away from me.
that's too close,
give me some space
it's a big country,
there's plenty of room,
don't sit so close to me.
Hey, where are ...
