Treasure Island

GRANT FRASER

(JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

Cove Bay Narcissist


I broke the hotel mirror,
and worried and worried,
while we tinkered over that
stupid computer,

I'm going to use a slate in future!

Until God threw black ink
out into the sky,
and I jumped up - grabbed my camera,

Oh! seven years!

who cares - my whole existence is crap,
and so much failure!

Then I was crying in the toilet,
and shitting at the same time...

the truth is out there somewhere?

but the ink spread fast,
like kids black paint in water,

and then I missed it all
and cried again,

wondering if I should visit
the hotel,
tell them why I did it!

my whole self image went
crashing to the floor,

Drink the demon,

for i couldn't stand
it anymore,

the ego, the reasons I've failed,
and all the people I've let down...

ah! shit, this is it!

and I want the small world,
i live in, to know that!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
