Treasure Island

Mark R Slaughter


Right Hemisphere


Folds of brain unravel
Under loneliness of inner thought -

A nakedness that has to hurt when
Cranium leaks out the poems thro'
Starboard hemispheric strain

The right-side strings it all together

See

Yet

Pains my consciousness to
Drill a deeper tunnel, finer channel
Help the inner me command
Control of my insanity

Thro' honed expression -
Mould it
Somehow
Let it brim unwittingly

Neuronal chatter
Spits out another poem

They call it being a poet
When left side is cast aside
For right side to bastardise
The logic

Leaving me betwixt a shadow-ghoul
And my façade:
The ego and the id presented.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
