when I was young, I wanted
to be a punk rocker

metal holes lining my body like
trophies of war, hair teased
and bleached and styled for hours
on end until  it looked effortless,
inked up with words and symbols
I swore were profound with
a cigarette hanging lazily
from my fingers, lonely

for a reason

   (and he told me, sweetie,
   you are like a fucking eclipse,
   the bloody dawn  
   God plagued us with

   I always wondered
   if mistakes understood
   the reason they
   came to be in this world

 I guess not).
and we thought it was so cool, living like we weren't afraid to die, until we realized it meant we lived for nothing

"I always wondered if mistakes understood the reason they came to be in this world."

...That cuts deep.
Cuts real deep, it does.

If was never afraid to die.
I never thought twice about risking it all.
Those moments I could see my life flashing before my eyes were the moments I felt most alive.

Whether I live to be twenty four or one hundred, I really don't care.
Just as long as someone's glad I'm dead, I'll know my life meant that much to someone.

You're so young but your heart and mind feel so very vast and I marvel at you, wonder with my mouth agape like the first man to find the first ocean (of time). You're brilliant and old and wiser than I ever was and, perhaps (I suspect), ever will be.

What can a person do but love you?

PS - Your artist's comments are often as wonderful as the poems themselves but, in this case, I think it surpasses it... and it is no small thing.
