Poetry and AIDS-related Dementia



Poetry and AIDS-related Dementia


AIDS and crystal have fucked my brain

Harder than a man insane

My intellect did wither and wane

My words are greeted with disdain


The poems once came to me in dreams

They wandered-up my pants’ inseams

Or came from clouds of lightest creams

Such gushing, rushing cerebral streams


And I was made of Arrogance

That always dared to take a chance

Assume the heroic stance

But did I ever really advance


This life’s a ball of puss to lance

Take me out of my morbid trance

Rid my mind of castrating can’ts

Proceed without a passing glance
