Byron fucking Coley

this is how it went: regular old Pettibon search on ebay turns up the SY Forced Exposure 7", which includes the unforgettable b-side "I Killed Christgau With My Big Fuckin' Dick." Which makes me wax poetic to an ex girlfriend about Forced Exposure in the 1980s, reading it in San Mateo, thrilled. So I type Byron Coley, FE's editor, into goooooogle, which gets me some of his recent poetry, which I reproduce here without permission:


amidst my dreams

i licked yr pussy
so long and so hard

that a halo of steam
rose from its glorious depths

and hovered over yr belly
like a smoke ring

pulled by castro's gentle lips
from a twenty dollar cigar

I am not a poetry reader.
I liked that one.

F.E. was good too.

Byron Coley was a notorious chicken hawk on the Boston Scene. He would blame everyone else for his mental problems. This page is pretty funny.

Has someone slapped Coley senseless or is he still in hiding? He is really hated by soooooo many people.

Byron Coley has absolutely no taste whatsoever.
He is a shameless huckster who jumps on the latest trend bandwagon hoping to go Platinum.
What a joke.

Gawd, that's abominably horrendous poetry. He actually uses "yr" in his poetry. Gee-faw-w-w.

Well, at least we now know that he uses mylar baggies to protect his LPs and has facial hair.

I thought anything was poetry until reading that stuff. Eeeeek. What's with the long and hard? A Freudian slip?
