Treasure Island

Mikey Bachman

(June 1,1991 / California)

Yesterday


Seamlessly threading golden yarn
Through intricate stainless sleeves
In and out and as a cairn
Cloth sewn for aching knees

Jaded into filling spaces
Leveling nearly desolate places
Creed in gaps of spaces
Holding knots as valiant laces

Moreover now we stumble
And fall beneath the vaguely lit rubble;
'Ashes to ashes and dust to dust'
Eating silver hearts as rust

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
