Treasure Island

Mandolyn ...


if the sun blows up, come find me


the temperature rises
around me, like the soul of Summer
that swings from tree to tree-
a quiet forest
you kept tucked inside your palm
until i peeked
and swooned like it was 1893-

you handed me a fire,
i blew the flame to watch it dance
felt the glow of your eyes
following me in every room-

sackcloth dreams, i wrapped around me
a hundred miles or more
towards piney paths and pastures
i touch with made up memory-

now peaches fall to the ground
and are picked up
by your sturdy, hustling hands
i ache to grasp
and hold for hours-

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
