Dustin Scott’s ‘F#%&ing Poetry’ started life as a tiny pocket journal that was carried around for eighteen months and gradually compiled from his day to day experiences. After increasing demand from friends and family, the book has now been released to the public as one of the most hard-hitting and unique volumes of verses ever put on the shelves. Don’t expect Scott to be playing by the rules – this is a book about life that one reader hailed “Raw and unflinching, love poems for your Post-Post-Modern angst”.

Rancho Cucamonga, CA – While the world is reading more than ever before, poetry is the one genre seeing a decline in popularity. Many readers and critics blame this on poetry’s tendency to alienate itself from the real world by over-romanticizing its subjects. Thankfully, at a time when it is needed the most, Dustin Scott storms the scene with gusto to release a poetry book that is…well…less than normal.

The title says it all. ‘F#%&ing Poetry’ sees Scott throw the rule book out of the window to present his own view on life that will have readers reveling in its realism. In fact, this “poetry for the real world” is expected to attract a loyal following among those who have previously shunned the genre.


Fucking Poetry is a book of working class poetry from the heart and pocket of a talented young poet. This book is the culmination of one and half years of Dustin Scott carrying a notebook in his pocket and writing poems when inspired. This pocket project has produced a raw unapologetic look at life from a loving and spiritual man who isn’t afraid to mix in some cuss words when called for.

If you like poems that have traveled in the artist’s pocket for over a year then you’ll loved these aged and seasoned works from this promising new poet.

“I literally carried my original journal around in my pocket for eighteen months, furiously writing down anything that conveyed a message about the human condition, be it a life-lesson, quirk or even poignant experience,” explains the author. “I ended up with a microcosm of life itself, and my friends and family pushed me to release it for the benefit of others. Each verse helped me get through life, and can easily do the same for others, whether or not they actually like poetry.”

Continuing, “I received amazing support from my wife, Valerie “Carny-Val” Scott, who designed the book’s striking cover. We’re currently working on our distribution, especially getting the book physically stocked in outlets across the country. This volume has the ability to change your opinion of f#%&ing poetry!”

The book has been received with critical acclaim. For example, Stacy Harper comments, “I really enjoyed this book. It’s unapologetic, raw, and very real. You can feel Mr. Scott pour his heart into the words he’s laid out in front of us to read. Not everyone can be this honest with themselves and share it with the world. Some poems made me laugh, some made me tear up, and some hit my heart with a punch. I could relate, I could embrace, and I could feel his work. I look forward to more!”
