Treasure Island

Waltz For Zizi

(7 march 1988)

Those That Follow Your Kisses


Those that follow your kisses, in the castle of leaves
that I raised from dust, the few times you were asleep in your bed, and I wasn't,
the castle that resembles the form of your heart, and shadows even god's might;

And those that fear your kisses, and hide behind a friendship;

Those that chain themselves to your ankles, with prayers
because in their eyes your shape, your image, is white, as god's feathered creatures;

Those that made themselves a god from you,
so they wouldn't have to pray to a dead one;

Those that spill gold on your skin, the kings
searching for another nude tropy, to put in their beds;

Those that spil their heart on paper, and push it under your door at night;

Those that still fear to call you,
though they have undressed you of clothes, when all eyes were closed;

Those little men, those fools
they have no idea that they're all parts of me.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
