Cotes d'Armor

Coming in April the talented former dc Talk member Kevin Max will be releasing his new album entitled Cotes d'Armor. I'm really looking forward to it! Max always delivers stunning vocals, vibrant sound and a fresh unique perspective that few Christians aspire to. Max penned this poem and i figured I'd share it on this blog. You can find this poem along with everything Kevin Max over at

Cotes d’ Armor- A Poem

i blew up in the 90’s
just to fall in the zeroes
spent so much of my time
looking for heroes
who were all nonexistent
and had expired before 1920
and so we marched against the fields of the plenty
and the towns of the entitled
somewhere along the coast
of Cotes d’ Armor
i found a rifle with a bad tattoo
picked it up and blew a hole through you
and now you’re a ghost
and all of your friends
wander around in a world of dead ends
and fractured scenery
still spouting the same dead verse
riding the same machinery
and as we passed the borderline
i saw a neon billboard in your name
it was rusted and blemished
but had survived the flames
of the moon they called wormwood
and i stopped in my tracks
looked to the sky
paused for a moment
then took my own life.

-Kevin Max 2010
