Crowbar Outlaw (poem)

I’m going away, I’m going away,
I’ll leave you all today,
my drunken words merge through the air waves,
keep the echo of it swirling round your brain,

I lock everything behind this rib cage,
tracings of your faces, mine to take,
stuck on the walls of memoir
as I walk down memory lane,
I’ll leave you with my bitterness,
hold it tight within your fingers brittleness,
black dots like pupils stare you right in the eyes,
cencoring sight, whatever will I find beneath these nights,
between my dreams & these dark paths,
whatever is held inside,
like a small flickering flame
caught in a soft breeze in my mind,
inspiration shines a light,

I’m going away, I’m going away,
I’ll leave you all today,
my drunken words merge through the air waves,
keep the echo of it swirling round your brain,

These days they dawn a sudden darkness,
& a light of inspiration sparkles in my head,
these faces of my dreams,they look impatient to me,
like they were waiting in my bed,
I’ll be the crowbar outlaw,
break into the poets house & steal his mind,
make a trade with him, switch eyes & lives,
I’ll be the pissed & starvin piss artist,
too warped to make sense,
& too drunk to understand himself,

I’m going away, I’m going away,
I’ll leave you all today,
my drunken words merge through the air waves,
keep the echo of it swirling round your brain,

I’ll be lost, isolated, insane, down & out,
all the thinsgs they write songs about,
I’ll come back & blow you away,
with those who celebrate columbine & Kurt Cobain,
like christmas day,
I’ll be the crowbar outlaw,
swinging from broken window to broken jaw,
towers surround us & they rain bullet storms,
I sit at the control panel watching you all fall,
imprisoned in my own spite I crawl ’til i find the legs to walk,

I’m going away, I’m going away,
I’ll leave you all today,
brand my name into your brains
