Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


35 degrees centigrade


at 35 degrees
girl! it is hot

and i am sweating

at 45 degrees
i am ready

on to bed
i am sleepless

i am a log rolling
trying to catch moss

i am a stone
silent and hardened

i look at the moon
and i ask for wisdom

what's love got to do with this?
i am hot and loveless

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
