    Just dicovered this man a few days ago.. Been reading his poems.. I guess the opinions about him would be highly divided.. Hard to say whether he wrote well or was just mediocore...

    1 person liked.
    1 person did not like.

A Gas Butterfly

Tell me what's happening to me?
Why is my heart beating so fervently?
why has this madness, like a wave,
Broken through the rock of habit?

Is it my strength or just my torment
I'm too disturbed to tell:
From the shimmering lines of life
I extract a forgotten phrase...
