The Art of Wasting Away, a new book by Maite Tello, has been released by RoseDog Books.

A lot of messed up things happen to us
And if you think about it
There are 8 billion different versions of today
This book is just one of them
The raw and honest truth of
What living is
What struggling is
And everything inbetween
All compressed into a short book full of
Long words
The exploitation of the things that eat us alive
And absolutely no rhyming because this isn't Dr. Seuss
