Nirvana in a Postcard (1992)


Nirvana in a Postcard by Bad Etiquette from Bad Etiquette (1992) JH, JB

Bad Etiquette Cover

a mountain,
falling
through
the sky,
landing
on my head

tension unbearable
I break the rubble
and see
a murky sky,
smoke-stacked
contaminated

I’m screaming for
cleanliness
a place to rest

like a postcard
heavenly – opaque

the sheen
shades
the illusion
the heaviness
the lost
nirvana

searching for
something
that
never
existed.


Notes

  • from the cassette “Bad Etiquette” by Bad Etiquette (1992).
  • John Battaglia wrote and produced the music, and I may be biased, but I think the music is beautiful.

Written: 1992
