Long, curly hair framing an impetuous, sensuous face; a chunky, beaded necklace holding on to his lean torso like the snakes he so often rhapsodized about, this was Jim Morrison in his prime. The photo, taken by Joel Brodsky, recorded the renowned rock star on one of the last days he would ever look this excellent, prior to deteriorating into a puffed up, bushy alcoholic. A beautiful guy who had everything, Morrison would be dead in 4 years. According to the professional photographer, Morrison was blind drunk during that photo shoot in 1967. You couldnt tell from the photos. He looked virile and alive. The camera had lied.

And much like your hero, you would end up being an alcoholic. You d also written your share of bad poetry.

Was this your Jim Morrison moment, where you looked as good as you ever would? Like Morrison, you d been a chubby kid. You looked cool however would never feel that way.

Goddess of burning urination

Clap Trap, A small-breasted nymph

Groveling for desire you gave in

To pumping her any which way

In this city of females

You lay dregs and intoxicated exceptions

Regular masturbations

Are cock and ball hand me downs

The first night, obtaining your fathers car, you d opted for your sibling to Hamburger Hamlet, allegedly a cool location, according to your papa. You remember him telling you not to avoid late or bring home any chicks. He d winked. You can still keep in mind the envy in his eyes. Oh, to be young once again, he said loudly as you paraded out the door.

The photo brings it all back: summer break from college, visiting the old male in California. Looking at it now its appealing to believe that this was the time of your life.

You didnt even speak with one. Entombed in a leather cubicle, you and Jesse attempted valiantly to look like you had it going on. You d spent the rest of the night killing time, waiting for it to be late enough to return home with a form of your daddys dream intact.
