J.J. Campbell

this fruitless journey

squeezing water out 
of the rocks again

this fruitless journey 
to the bottom of 
my mind

i will die penniless 
and insane

some little cabin 
a thousand miles
away from anything

some think it is tragic

i like to think of it 
as fitting

being popular was 
never my thing

being prolific was 
just insanity taking
the wheel and bleeding 
on the page

it gets a little messy

but anything worth 
your time is supposed 
to be that way
