Note to a young musician

I am searching your music
With torn flesh and jagged nails
Ripping stones from the earth
To find our root on the surface
Photosynthesizing some toleration
For the modified scream,
Your life flipping
From street to stage
I am looking for a beat to write
Dancing is too easy
Too coherent
Life is not like that anymore
What is left us beyond the jagged teeth of sound
Is what this music has become
This overwhleming hedonism
This great feeling
That we shall never amount to nothing more
Than this, a heart frantic
To become detach again
Without a chemical therapy of pain
