My Life

by davidchrzanowskipoetry

Poem number 4.

13 years old; I’m a punk.
17 – get a mohawk,
2 days later dye it pink.
Spend the next 15 years
researching politics looking
for alternatives.
The books I read were written
100 years ago,
and I’m still thinking of change,
Something to bring down
Capitalism.
28 years old: I look at my
iPad, iPod, iPhone, MacBook Pro – oh!
I am Capitalism.
