Anthrax

I’m all fucked up with the scent of you,
washing through my memories like the blood through my hands.
Discipline is something I don’t want,
heat and flames have no fucking control and neither do I.
Over
Finished
Done
Gone
Out

– HEX


Author’s Postmortem: my own analysis of my work, some folks prefer not to know, so spoilers ahead.

The first few lines of this one are original, and the underlying inspiration is (as you may have guessed) a woman I was involved with at the time I wrote this. Sometimes control in the face of overwhelming desire is a bit like being on fire.
While this poem makes use of a few words from the Anthrax song “Finale” from the album “State of Euphoria”, from what the lyrics sheet says on the web I’ve mixed the order up but I sure don’t recall the lyrics being different than what I wrote. The supposed original words are “Over, finished, gone, done, out!”, and as I was inspired by the song I named the poem Anthrax.

    I'm the girl in the accompanying photo above your "Anthrax" poem… :)
    Your words are compelling, and I often find that a little cornerstone offered by another's creative endeavor(s) actually helps me improve on my own work as well… When my dad passed away, I saw a Bukowski poem posted on my Tumblr Dashboard and knew right away that the poem was about my father and I, and so I changed it accordingly. :)
    cheers and thank you for the honor of being a part of your personal work!

    • Thanks for your comment! The emotion seen in the photograph really fit this poem, and I hope to be able to use more of your pics in the future, thank you for making them available!
