Treasure Island

Mark Heathcote

(22/03/66 / Manchester)

Brave and like a stag lock antlers


Love must have an answer to everything…
Now, look. Crying, what good does that do you?
If you; fill a well of deep despairing
It'll seep into every avenue…

Sure enough your heart will require sutures
To stem, its blackened blood, frothing the mouth.
So, be brave and like a stag, lock antlers
With the world, be like deserts almost drought.

Let cacti flowers open to the sun
Let your heart and soul, be one joyous thorn
Stabbing life; like a small kitten, smitten.
Somewhat with - its ball of lamb's wool; careworn.

Love must have an answer to everything…
Else, what's the point of us …all this bleeding?

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
