Treasure Island

benjamin bueno


awkward and sweet


The crack of dawn. Awkward and sweet. Couch potato and sex tornado. Can't taste it, why waste it? Trial by jury. History of mystery. It's gonna get thick real quick and we may need a way out. It'll pick you right up. Shine on. Defeat them for good. Breathe happy. Itchy and scratchy. Love doesn't live there. She's crazier than we think. I don't want to be fake. We should just go our separate ways. High strung. The war is coming and I am just a shrinking violet. Onwards and upwards. Accept no substitutes. The ultimate expression of power. See what unfolds. Right over theyr dark spots. I came out of the womb laughing. Potential into performance. Taken beyond the point of death. And I can't hold this secret in much longer. Alive in the holy land. Alive in the lords hands. It'll live in a simple breathe. Because the heart has its reasons. And the game has wrote itself off again. And she blew me a kiss. Out there in the middle of nowhere. Stranded forever. In my lever of love. Where have you been? Living only in my memory. So I don't give up, I give on. I give in. Hope springs.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
