Fred Bacher: Birthday Cards from the Condemned

Right now a man is sitting at a computer in a tiny, smoke filled hotel room. The curtains are drawn. He glances over at two garbage cans full of Edmund Fitzgerald beer. It is his armada as he navigates through his personal hell, occasionally stopping to pick up the phone and voicemail a poem to the outside world.
