LIFE IS KILLING ME
(9/9/15)


some musicians
die
self-inflicted deaths
of drugs

alcohol

or other
life excesses

there's certainly
enough pain
to go around

others
write songs
of devil worship
as they laugh

cross
themselves

sip soda

and
grow old

the music
of either
holds up well
over the
years

but we
wonder
a bit more
as we listen
to the lyrics
of young
tortured
ghosts
