Treasure Island

Jerry Lundeguarde

(New York City)

I'm Not Afraid Anymore


with the fuzzy edges of her floating
down to the smooth riverside boulders
with all those pebbles in her pockets
drifting without bizarre hesitation

not quite a zombie but a shivered
poem because Ouse water must have
been excruciatingly cold indeed
he promised to look away from her

pantaloons on top of the soon dark
current wafting like some cotton lava

    Aha a poem of confrontation before a name is given - a poem from the days of Eden about confrontation - you can still do it - image tumbles after image to create - a what but - but a deep experience. Like this a lot - a lot (Report) Reply

    Well I take 2 things from this.

    1. This was a girl he took advantage of killed and sent her on her way down the river or
    2. This is a guys first time possibly skinny dipping with a chick her really likes as the evening turns to night.

    Either way I like it, it's different and makes you think. Thanks for sharing! (Report) Reply
