Treasure Island

From the warmth of the second cuppa,
poured at 7am,
it must be 8.30 now.

8.20...
it's a bit cooler than I...

...I was carried away by visions:

a ghoul in wide-eyed, arms-high laughter;

two Inuit watching the white horizon for the last time
from inside a gaping mouth...
...or watching a movie;

a carved albino gourd...
...or a tribal mask;

two new cigars together side-by-side;

a logo for lesbian lovers,
Simultaneously Mothers-To-Be;

an eyeball to eyeball Easter Island confrontation;

Brancusi: 'Kiss: Updated'.

My ride has been
in what I've seen,
in, on its side,

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
