Hello and welcome to Zaroff Poetry.

my pen name is Zaroff and these are my cryptic free verse psychodrama writings since October 2016.through my poetry i explore emotions with my childhood, family, love, death, insanity, and a flood of thoughts in and around Knoxville, Tennessee.

pull up a chair and let me break you off a piece of my mind.


2016: i’ve released one self published chapbook titled “マリー Zaroff” in a 5 of 5 limited run containing 12 poems; two of which collaborate with fellow DU poets Atomikbomb and Shadoe.

2019: currently working on a new upcoming poetry book  “Call center manifesto”.


“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
― Ernest Hemingway

“God makes some men poets. Some He makes kings, some beggars.”
these are all cough drops from a call center


i welcome harsh criticism with open arms.
