No Shit (Iggy Pop)

It was in the winter of my fiftieth year
When it hit me

I was really alone
And there wasn’t a hell of a lot of time left

Every laugh and touch that I could get
Became more important

Strangely, I became more bookish
And my home and study meant more to me
As I considered the circumstances of my death

I wanted to find a balance between joy and dignity
On my way out

Above all, I didn’t want to take any more shit

Not from anybody

White Kitten

saw a white kitten
in the road today
with a tyre track through its body

its head was still intact
and its tail was swishing angrily
where was god?

Silent Night

Dog tired
Can’t rest
I prowl a house
That is silent as our hearts

What would I give
For the mind
Still full of hope
And wild imagining?

The autumn weather
Cracks the teak
Once tall and living

Here naked
The ridicule
Of going out of being
