Treasure Island

Heather Fuller

(Keflavik)

stricken [from]


::record::

a teacher ::record:: helps a boy get a gun

it's about not ::record:: looking mistakable

::record::

houndstooth
accordion attache

bounty hunter provisions


::record:: I told the teacher about Pietro's

I was angry with the police again

it was not my movie

I was mixed up in campaign finance reform

I was sweet shiftless and poor


and stricken

::record::, a boy is loaded


American Express makes it ::record:: better


'providing alternatives to jail for persons who pose no danger to the community'


Loan Consolidators for your ::record:: problems


'but use purpose area #15A if primary focus is drug testing or purpose area #20 if focus is reducing jail crowding'


Effective Sanctions that Fit the ::record:: Budget


somehow I was caught up in this


and questioned about a family ::record:: resemblance


so early in the morning

::record::

the suspicious handbag on the sidewalk


the police are there

but I've neglected them


::record::


I've been told it's the Decade of the Brain


I must step aside


because the opera construction


there's a public fund for demolition


::record:: if you can find it


how did the smallest children ::record:: capture

the 4-foot wingspan

lash it to a branch

so the sewer birds ::record::


how did the smallest children

::record::

and unchecked pestilence


I am asking because there's a question

hanged


in America

::record::

the curiosity

of the fully-covered body


in America

[.............]

[.......... ...]

of humility


one year later we don't know

what happened on the ::record:: plane


how he ::record:: got the gun

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
