Treasure Island

(april 18 1990 / Cape Town)

never to be respoken


my words will be forgotten
paper becomes soaken
all that i write
will not effect what is wrong or right
poetry or plays
nothing left that stays

no life apart from my own
will grow out of any seeds ive sown
i may speak the truth devoid of lies
or write masterpieces that evoke a million cries
but in less than ten years
i will see what mortal man fears
i will not be remembered
my words will never be intellectually dismembered

i will be forgotten
so will my life, never to be respoken

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
