Burning Man


What have I become
Johnny Cash once questioned
covering a commercially popular
Nine Inch Nails song

Reviewing the haunting video
I can taste his inevitable demise
feel his sense of desperation
and hopelessness
lingering in my blood and bones
leaving me empty inside
questioning my own reality

What will I become Mister Cash
once I’ve followed your lead
will my empire of dirt burn eternally
somewhere other than here on earth
