Treasure Island

Mark Heathcote

(22/03/66 / Manchester)

To find an arrows pinpoint of weakness…


Love cuts through, cowardly, courage.
To find an arrows pinpoint of weakness…
Where it can draw drops of crimson blood
Eking out its Sires;
Bow-wielding warrior’s emptiness...
The taste of which burns; florescent.
With a numbing, pain against their lips.
A bull’s-eye dagger plucks a fondant-
Heart; kisses duel like two warring ships.
Love is a victim of courage and disgrace
Too shallow at times to be a lived in face
Its nonchalance sings like a nightingale!
Derision begs always the wind in its sail.
Love takes a lemon and makes lemonade
Love is a big old hurricane. It lifts…
And somehow levitates everything staid,
Skywards like a cannonball, in magical rifts...

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
