Holding Back Vultures

skull with a rose
in its teeth

a smile not easily

dead alive

Roman numerals

don’t be
another Blackstar

my fragile heart
can’t handle it

still enough time
to change the world

with popped collars
wing-tip shoes
dancing in the rain
on a sunny

behind blue eyes
and pain

  1. Great writing!!!!
    Minimalistic at it finest
    Saying VOLUMES with few words and making it seem an feel so natural and effortless!
    I picked up Elvis meets Bowie archetype right here!
