Break Of Day In 2012 - Poem by Alex Liberto

From the back of a wardrobe
I stumbled
on another man's hunger
which I Pillaged and plundered
through ash and thunder

another man's war

I miss what I was
injured but fighting
ripped abs and bulging
teasing girls
pleasing boys
hurt lads indulging

I wore chinos tight
denim and suede
long hair
flaring
bleached
surfer blond
sea spray and song
Ripcurl O'Neill
Billabong and Tees
wrapped round me
like passion obsession
cling-film impression

I miss what I was
who I was
off the track
Injured
but home

I've lost my way back now
the tether has snapped
I search
through backlash
of thunder and ash
trudging on sludge
trenches
poppies
withered
and white
