Charlie Sheen's Early '90s Poetry Is Unearthed, Insane

As should come as surprise to no one, Charlie Sheen, the man behind eloquence like "I'm tired of pretending I'm not a total bitchin' rock star from Mars" and "Can't is the cancer of happening," has written his own book of poetry. GQ's Amy Wallace unearthed the priceless compilation, titled "A Peace of My Mind"—a self-published volume of verse that Sheen wrote in the early '90s. GQ vows to continue posting excerpts on its Tumblr. For now, here's one titled "Heretic Proof":

Heretic Proof
By Charlie Sheen

Endive, undead, unbroken,
Unwed,
Relax, relate, rehab,
Drug addict,
Pursue, persuade, persist,
Per-petuate [sic] your own death
By smiling a lot.
Supply, succumb, deny--everything.
Always.
Turtle, android, pain.
Endeavor, endless, end.

P.S. Janonis.
