This is Poetry

This isn’t obtuse, this is personal
I woke to gargled blood in my throat last night
Coughed my DNA for twenty minutes
Or in other words an eternity
I have lesions on my brain
They turn my world upside down
I know I am sick
This is life
This is true
This is Poetry
There is nothing more to say
I’ll let the vultures caw.

I really like this as well,

I really like this as well, which is unusual because I tend to prefer poems with more rhyme, and I guess "obtuse" natures. The "cough[ing] DNA" antonym in particular was excellent... I know that sounds morbid but just the way you put it. Thanks for sharing.

up to the skies.
Thing like that drive me
out of my mind.

I love to watch things on TV." - Lou Reed
