Ian Curtis

Ian Curtis,

what went wrong?

Now you are

remembered for a song.

You said that

love would never

tear you apart.

Then you made

depression into art.

You were the one

who never had control

always destined

to play that role.

Wired for sound

and ready for transmission.

You were the genius

behind Joy Division.

Aged twenty-three,

epileptic and hectic.

you sought a way out

you thought was poetic.
