Treasure Island

Leslie Philibert

(6th March 1954 / London, England)

Lilith


Lilith opened up her thighs
and showed the world her blackened eyes
her god oh god oh god

God banged his head against the tree
why have you now forsaken me?
no god oh god oh god

Eve now jealous of the snake
cried out in pain for heaven`s sake
her god oh god oh god

Adam cursed the apple red
and all the lies that Eve had said
his god oh god oh god

So do not speak and do not tell
this story of the road to hell
no good no god oh god.

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
