Treasure Island

Bri Edwards


Or Liver, Or Bladder, Or Kidneys.... [medical worries, mixed with humor; anorexia; an ex-wife; Limerick? ]


Do clearly-seen ribs anorexia mean?
Donna fears, to it, she may lean.
I say it’s time to fear
when she looks in mirror
and then CLEARLY sees outline of spleen.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

hopefully no one takes offense at my using a seriously unhealthy condition as a jumping off point for my attempted humor! anyone who is told she/he is looking anorexic might benefit from consulting with a doctor instead of reading this poem. Donna was my wife # 3. still alive and kicking last i knew.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
