Treasure Island

Edwin Cordero


Be Nothing, Be Gone


When the suffering ends,
I’ll be nothing, be gone.
Righted shall be wrongs,
As my ashes flash, then
Disappear amongst throngs.

No way to look back, hold on,
To a face now lacked, love.
No shame leaving matters unsolved,
Or gains unamassed, lust.

Those stresses which make us move on
Will be as if consumed by dawn.
Those lessons that darkened our lungs
Shall come to lose motivation.

Life is not where we belong,
But how oblivion provides salvation.
I’ve known all along,

When the suffering ends,
I’ll be nothing, be gone.
Righted shall be wrongs,
As my ashes flash, then
Disappear amongst throngs.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
