1 Poem by Bradford Middleton


I got as drunk as Li Po and deranged my senses just like young Rimbaud

I went as far as I could in a bid to forget all the tragedies and afflictions this life has caused

And very briefly, last weekend, I almost went as the maddest of mad men

That went all the way just like the old dead Bukowski would have wanted

But I pulled back and sit here now, knee aching but mind feeling as if it couldn’t take anymore

So you know what, I just got to stop and be happy with the me you see and read.
