Good Crazy – Marc Carver

the power of a god

Special thanks to Marc Carver for sharing his poetry with us and supporting the project. Perhaps the best people in life are always a little bit crazy…


You see being crazy is not all that bad as it seems.

After all there is good crazy and bad crazy.

I always have seen myself as good crazy

but I guess most people see themselves as good.

Even the bad ones

But we can always justify what we have done.

Until the last days when you don’t bother with people at all.

They are just there like props in a stage production that no one will ever see.

I talked to the man in the street today, he paints the same town every day.

he says he paints everyday.

He painted over a couple of people in his painting

and just like that they were gone

murdered, seizing to exist.

He had the power of life in his brush

the power of a god

but me I would prefer to create then kill

so you see good crazy that is me.

Marc Carver
