Treasure Island

Madrason writer

(24-07-1967 / waalwijk netherlands)

Five minutes a day will do


One, two, three, beam away
it only costs a Blackberry
nearly a pound a day;
Are the eyes
the soft touch-screens
sucked in by tension
a third dimension
alter ego-ed
like Self echoed
away nanoseconds
a war of nerves
branches and highways
vibrating byways
escapes from
from whom
hormones captured by
pixels bit by bit
they sit and wait and jump
-but do not contemplate-
straight in to your
lens
it's tense
immense
intensifying
it's dying
on the masks
so mystifying
musts
there's no denying
if....,
fingers dancing
on a screen
an interplay
as if to say
'Touch me'
but What if
the battery
turns down
light out of eyes
and a frown
.............
feeling captured
on your own
and damn alone!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
