Gobblers / Masticadores // Editores: Manuela Timofte / j re crivello

"When you no longer
see the shadow of what
kept you strong
it's time to let go."

Those would be the last words
he wrote
at the back of the notebook
he filled with thoughts
and rants
and poems

‘Thoughts That Come From
The Heart’
was the title

and the work will remain
for long after he'd
pass away

At least that was the plan

But alas,
as he gave his final breath the
cigarette rolled from his fingers
to the desk and all the way
down on the shaggy carpet

It was a matter of minutes
until the
whole room became
a snapshot from the inferno

It's almost like the gods
want to send
a message. They want to
say that poets
rarely
if ever
have happy endings

I'm starting to
believe that
more and
more as
the days pass

    1. (っಠ‿ಠ )っ Yeah, usually what the artist thinks is something like, “In a thousand years my bones will turn to dust, but my name will live on!” (or something along these lines), but alas, there are plenty of cases when it’s just not so…
