James M.

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

James M.

 

 

a plane to catch

a window to walk through

one more gulp of courage

there's a room in Paris

Moulin Rouge painting reflected in his eyes

 

like Bukowski to music,

he lay in a bath of insanity

eyes open

words closed

 

getting cold.

all in the unfortunate 27 club.
Sounds like this fellow needs a break from catching planes lol a bit of my twisted humor there. I’m sure it’s the planes that caused the insanity. For I’m terrified of flying

Morrison was flying even when he wasn't.

That is very true
Watching TV has got to you J. James M, really upset his adoring fans with his early exit. Such an incredible waste and likening him and his music to Buwkowski and his poetry works well for me. Living on the edge. Not a safe place to be.
