clearly influenced by Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

enjoy, or kill yourself. Whatever suits thy fancy.


A ship stands empty in the harbor
There is no sound
The seagulls have all died
and all the metal has rusted

Men look to the sky for answers
and the stars are glass
reflecting their shame and fear
and all the metal has rusted

Fires light the world in orange
stained glass blood
spills onto the broken concrete
and all the metal is rusted

A ship stands in an empty harbor
there is no sound
all the sailors have died
and all the metal is rusted

  I laughed when you said enjoy or killl yourself then I read the poem and it actually depressed me even though i have no clue why. Anyway This is amazing I love the imagery the flow and how in the last stanza changing two words from the first stanza makes it so much worse to invision. It read so easily and nearly brought me to tears and at the end still left me sitting asking you why in the heck did this make me so freaking sad? I like a write that forces you to think and in its simple way this one does just that. Definatley a fav. Great piece, keep writing.
