Treasure Island

Take Away


Take away from me this realm of darkness
Take away from me this depth of pride
Take away from me the reeds of holy
Take away and away aside

Take away from me this life; this breath
Take away and let me fly
Take away from me my name; my creath
Take away without a word or sigh

Take away from me my breasts, my face
Take away from me that evil eye
Take away – beseech your ruthless grace
Take away and let me die!

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
