Treasure Island

ONElia AVElar

(Bulgaria)

(Organic)


the lizard of happiness
crawls down my neck
swift crossing bosom -
thin flash on hot skin
disappears noiseless
between opening-legs
in a concrete building
on the seventh floor
air conditioner and iron bed
digit-key-code for the door
plastic table and TV
still organic you and me

    I love this poem, there is a subtle eroticism to it. The lizard of happiness crawling across the neck and swift crossing bosom give us a hint of something more intense and yet the poem itself is scant of detail so gives chance for the imagination to fill in the gaps. Great work dear One. HG: -) x (Report) Reply

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;
