I'm no professor, but I think they are great inspiration to get people to further improve instead of stagnate, as they helped me through similar situations many times. I do not promote any artists but myself, and these are all opinion pieces. Feel free to take a listen and enjoy the tunes while you break from reading poetry. "Look On Down From The Bridge" by Mazzy Star
JACK DEMPSEY Larks on the branches are all undercover with brass empty, March to the madness and maul motherfuckers like Jack Dempsey, Scream like a bat shrieks and feast on the rat’s meat when knowing autumn is a djinn, Meet on the back street with trees in the black sleet and throwing caution to the wind, An unholy botchling without skin in an oak-free coffin for its sin as its mother weeps in stones, A cold breeze coughing on the brim of the only carbon in the hymn as the gutter greets the bones, Another sleeps in cones where the antlers rest at night, A summer breeze at homes where the cameras test the light, Madness bests with might and the monsters meander back to town, Packing shivs to fight when the honor seems hampered after now, Perhaps casting out to the sea of thoughts flooding the man’s visor, The rats scamper out when they’re free of cops coming to stand by there, Their hearts ran in defection of the dead, buried bones to indemnify the police, The larks stand in procession as the men carry stones to signify their defeat.
