Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Burning Off Liquor


Bumping and grinding with motions of confusion
and deliberate intoxication.
Burning off liquor and having a very good time of it.
Dancing, running into each other, laughing and being
enticed by one another to have fun.
Kicking, moving up and down - returning to a starting
position - only to start over again.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,

Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
