by veronica estes

In this collection of obscure confessions, veronica estes presents a memoir of sorts written in a cryptic style that goes right to the emotional heart of her life. She combines writing both poetic and prosaic, while a times fusing genres to take you on a journey to the other side of life, a life sometimes fun, sometimes boring, and often tragic. We hear “cooked Benzedrine laugher,” we picture “incredible dreams full of promise,” and deal with a “drunk/hungover mother who lives on that couch.”

In a humorous vein, we read about “Barbie’s One Mistake”:

Ken won’t even talk to her and Skipper’s joined a gang Barbie’s now a housewife the job she cannot handle

It’s not easy being a doll facing middle age. She dreams of her ideal world in “The Place.” In a place where I make no mistakes I will drown tomorrow out While I wait for sedation to disconnect the mind I can breathe in your tune

Join veronica estes in rocking back and forth’s my life. You will see your life and the lives you’ve met.


A native of Racine, Wisconsin, veronica estes enjoys painting and freelance writing.

(2005, paperback, 38 pages)
