Treasure Island

April Humason

(Fort Worth, Texas)

Family road trip


Whipping from side to side
Slamming on the brakes
Going 0 to 60 in seconds
Jammin to the beat on the radio
Kid are fist fighting in the backseat
Nothing but construction around us
Rocks hitting the windshield
A Mercedes cutting me off
Splat a bug is dead again
Bright lights shining in my eyes
People cursing each other out
Traffic is making me late
The gas is on E again
Still over an hour to go
Kids are screaming are we there yet
Oh no a bathroom break again

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
