David Bowie tribute poem – Shine on Blackstar

If I could escape

mental chains

rigid with rust

Discover elements

which rise and combust

Only then could I honour

Bowie the man

but he is a blackstar

and I simply am

All that I have

Is my black lump of coal

To burn for the one

who ignites the soul

Until fire turns to ashes

and, ashes to dust

and dust feeds a field

where new life

breaks thought’s crust
