To Trent, from Scott Clark

Time takes a cigarette
Puts it in your mouth
You pull on a finger,
Then another finger,
Then, cigarette.
The waterwall is calling,
It lingers, then you forget:
Oh, no, no, no;
You’re a Rock and Roll suicide.
You walk past the café,
But you don’t eat
When you’ve lived too long.
Oh, oh, oh, oh;
You’re a rock and roll Suicide.
--David Bowie: Rock and Roll Suicide

(from the album Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars)
