Treasure Island

Joseph Narusiewicz

(9/29/50 / So St Paul, Minnesota)

Lilies of the Field


Long Island electric pink
Fashion - the dolls of the dying
Their glass eyes in black make up
Blue green orange red hallways

Fatigues with blood in the mountains
Needles lying on the soiled panties
Christmas tree lit like 5th Avenue
Careers dressed to take all they can

Lilies of the field neither toil nor spin

No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
