"The Lion Eating the Sun" Content Reveal

Since we’re one month away from the release of The Lion Eating the Sun, here’s a teaser of the upcoming collection’s contents, a partial list of poem titles anyway. Some you might have read already (e.g., “Mandy”, “Maybe”, “The Purple Lady”, “Too Soon”), some still remain in the vault (e.g., “Nessie”, “The Alchemist”, “Hey Little Johnny”, “The Black Sheep”). “How I Know I Love You” is sacred.

In this age, I find it amusing how people still get bored. At the end of our fingertips is an abundance of things to occupy our time: apps, hobbies, entertainment, places, and people. I have over a hundred apps on my smartphone and tablet to accompany me at my behest. Twitter and Medium alone take majority of my smartphone usage. I'm still plowing through Writer's Digest's Grammar Desk Reference which I bought a few weeks ago. And last month's issue of Reader's Digest is still waiting to spend some time with me. 50 Cent's Animal Ambition and Die Antwoord's Donker Mag both still have zero play count in my iTunes. And I already have Above and Beyond's latest EP Sticky Fingers on repeat. I'm yearning to visit New York City but I am already planning on returning to Singapore this year. I'm looking forward to knowing writers around the world while keeping up with my friends. There is a lot to be done on this earth; I have no time to get bored!

I have a few observations about people who gets inflicted with boredom often.
