This Isn’t Any Kind Of Life

THIS ISN’T ANY KIND OF LIFE

by D.S. Jones

This isn’t any kind of life

watching films made in the nineties, dreaming of girls born in

the eighties,

working with kids born in 2000

How the hell do you

tell a kid from 2000 about tapes,

about days before America Online,

before Iraq,

or cellphones?

How do you explain

love and hate

or Aids?

You can’t.

Just like our parents couldn’t tell us about Vietnam or theirs

about Germans and Japs,

drawing from the bottle

curled up next to the tube

watching John Wayne

movies in the dark

Or generations past

in caves painted with primitive beauty

lost in visions of the stars

choking on the mystic smoke of their forgotten past

pour down the poison

by D.S Jones

The editors can wait

The women can wait

The world can wait

Fury took a good punch in the twelfth round only to 

Get a draw

The blood can wait

The sheets can wait

The heart can wait

The passion can wait

The blood can wait

Nothing in a spinning room 

Feels real except for more death

More heartache 

All that matters now is the dying

One gulp at a time

Swallowing the poison

Like a thousand 

Porcelain drains

A Poet’s Advice

A Poet’s Advice

By D.S. Jones

I don’t believe in myself 

the young writer says

great

I bet you don’t believe in society either

I tell him

he tears away the seal on a fresh pack of cigarettes

and realizes his smoking is a form of luxury

he is happy to kill himself

in such a dignified way

I wipe my mouth and tell 

him we at least have something in 

common

and we walk through the woods on our way,

both exhaling the primitive beautiful

smoke of life surrounding us

Classic Noir: Farewell My Lovely

Robert Mitchum is all man. This classic features an amazing supporting cast that includes a young Sylvester Stallone. Highly recommended for all classic cinema buffs, or fans of Raymond Chandler’s work. A great Adaptation!

Jones is only available at Amazon.com.
