Treasure Island

The lake and the fisherman!


She never saw before

a frozen lake

but it should be on your mind...

as a thing icy
lost in the white
and with a hole
in the middle
with an external perfect diameter
and a liquid, dark and gelid

running out

Maybe, if you are a luck man

you will meet

on that all whiteness

a forlorn fisherman

and being more fortunate

a white bear

with all graces of one haven


She never saw before a white bear

but it should be, in your mind

as a thing icy

lost in the white

and has a hole
in the middle
with an external perfect diameter

and a liquid, dark and gelid

running out

And if you have luck

you should don’t see the bear

just the lonely fisherman

if God really look at you

you’ll never see who kills who

    The bear will kill for fish, goodbye yellow glasses, and you will watch running in place until he is hungry again. (Report) Reply
