The misery tune

“The misery tune” is the fourth volume of poems in the Has Doubts series, written by Alexander Velky. We’re crowdfunding (simultaneously for two volumes) with a view to publishing in late 2018.TMT The theme of this book is death; more specifically the human condition of being tasked with living, while knowing that death is the only certainty in life.

You can read a few of the poems and watch a couple of video performances (as and when they are uploaded) by following links from the contents list below. If you like the look of any of this, please consider helping to fund the publication of the book; or at least share the Kickstarter link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Bebo (lol not really) or anywhere else that might be appropriate.

Should the campaign be successful, offers for interviews, reviews, features, gig bookings etc. would all be considered.
