Kurt Cobain

I’m looking into your influences right now

And I’m afraid I can’t see myself in the Melvins, the Vaselines, the Raincoats, or even Kim or Thurston

So what is it about you?

I don’t know, you’ve just always seemed like a dream I wanted to have

Except I think I’d let it go on a lot longer than just 27 years

And go into some amazingly peculiar mid-life frenzies

Let that life make even more of a splash than you did before I give in

Try to outlive Burroughs and Bukowski

And find a way to revive Brautigan

Like his daughter said, you’d be the best of friends in latter day Tacoma

But I’m afraid I’ll never travel within those walls

Unless one of you has the key…
