Zach Goldberg – “Blackout”

Performing at Rustbelt 2019.

“It’s easy to think that ‘having an addictive personality’ means no one can get enough of you. Then, you grow up and your poetry professor tells you to stop writing poems about whiskey.”

Don’t miss this terrific poem from Zach Goldberg, performing at the 2019 Rustbelt Poetry Festival in St. Louis, MO.
