    Good poem - but, next reading should be done with someone who understands the music of language, the command of the vocal instrument. Apologies for being blunt. (Report) Reply

    Let me die a youngman's death
    not a free from sin tiptoe in
    candle wax and waning death
    not a curtains drawn by angels borne
    'what a nice way to go' death
    Nicely penned.

    Amazing! A great modern poem! Half Wordsworth/ half James Dean! A little Bukowski perhaps.

    ...Let me die in Red Ferrari recklessly driving
    Or from the perilous plunge whist sky diving...
