Treasure Island

Unintelligible Susurration


Wants


'People can stop
suffering by not
wanting'
is what they say

Who are you
to tell me what
not to want?
Who am I
to stop wanting
everything?

I am just a little girl
who desires the world
to be in her hands
and have everything
her heart desires

It's so contemptuous
that I am aware of
becoming this way
And just maybe
Might continue to be
Until it's intolerable

But my friends
will always be here
teaching me lessons
about life
and telling me
stories about
the outside world

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
