- Customer Reviews:
"Wrath James White's poems are red and wet love songs to a pillory, set to the beat of a flogging whip--the kind of sweet nothings Barker's Cenobites would whisper. If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse is full of blood and sex and viscera. There are no safe words here."
--Bracken MacLeod, author of 13 Views of The Suicide Woods & the Bram Stoker Award nominated novel, Stranded
"An exquisite collection exploring the lubricious carnality of love, lust, and the nightmarish pleasure of being human."
--Jessica McHugh, author of The Train Derails in Boston
"Wrath James White conjures up a collection of hardcore horror love poems. They are raw, real, and wrong in all the right ways. This is Gothic Romanticism on steroids.
--Christoph Paul, author of Horror Film Poems & At Least I Get You
"If Bataille had had an Instagram, if de Sade had met Clive Barker at a bus stop and gone back to his place, if you think art is not about making friends and Love is not about coming home alive, this is a book for you. At the bottom of all that blood, there's a tenderness."
--Cooper Wilhelm, author of Dumbheart/Stupidface

Great cover art, great title, If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse is not for the squeamish, nor is it for those who dislike explicit descriptions of sex in their horror. Wrath’s latest release goes straight for the throat. It squeezes tightly and refuses to let you draw breath until you turn the final page. There is a rawness about these verses, Wrath is clearly a man with a ravenous sexual appetite and he isn’t afraid to tell you about it. But don’t be lulled into thinking this collection is only for the alpha males, it isn’t. Here, Wrath shares his most intimate and personal moments and often mixes them into a cocktail of horror. The poetry is broken up by two pieces of fiction, but don’t think that these short stories will see Wrath take his foot off the throttle, on the contrary, both stories continue to excite and arouse.
I’ll be surprised if I read anything quite as open and as horrific as this for the remainder of 2018. This collection of poetry and fiction is unrelenting in its delivery and at times deeply personal, as good poetry should, in my opinion. At just over one hours reading, If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse is the perfect length. It certainly doesn’t outstay its welcome, instead choosing to deliver short, sharp, shocks of poetic horror. Enter if you dare…
