Best Poem of Matt Ullman

The Good Funeral

There may be a heaven
Sealed in the dark
Then there's no denial
About life here on earth
But while I wait here anyway
I have to love this 'til the day -

I want to have the good funeral
Death the mirror of life
Rock and roll in a big stadium
To the tune of paradise

If there is a heaven
I'll send a little note
Thanking everybody
Every good soul
For the good funeral
Death the mirror of life
Darling do this one thing for me
Don't you cry
Please just party when I die

Read the full of The Good Funeral

The Air

The air is oppressive here
Forcing itself down my gullet
Rushing down my throat

The air keeps me
Prisoner to the only world I know
It's a one-man show
Of prophets and promises
No one is released

[Hata Bildir]
