(September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

I'm losing interest

I'm losing interest in
impressing our fathers
who believe they know
a thing or two
because they saw Led Zeppelin
heard Plant's shrieks
and Page's solo chords
improvisational scores
showcasing what, I guess,
'REEL' music is

I'm losing interest
losing a lot of it
losing all care
in head banging
and unimpressive
(but still somewhat amusing)
legends and tales
of Ozzy snorting ants
and biting the heads off
and hearing about Girls,
Girls, Girls
and seeing that faggot
Nikki Six
riding on a lame

I'm losing interest
in eyes which
point their pupils
towards the sky
and see nothing
but a leather clad hero
tightly holding a chain
leashed to some anonymous
and in praise
chant those god awful lyrics
written in cocaine

I'm sorry
but I lost interest
in your midlife crisis

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
