Suicide…how embarrassing to have
Tried but not succeeded…When I drove
The car at 80mph on Arizona Avenue
In Santa Monica I was expecting to run
Into a wall, head flying through the dash
Board and cut my throat on the glass. Dead.
At over 80 miles per hour I ran the red light
but four cars broke my fall. My head didn’t
fly through the dash window at all. The dash
glass didn’t slit my throat like I’d planned, the
cars hit me and broke my speed surviving
with only a scratch to my knee. I was arrested,
stripped naked in a blue plastic gown hand-
cuffed to a chair. I stayed with the 5150’s at
LA County Jail for two months being tried
for assault with a deadly weapon.
Now I’m alive but a felon.
