Treasure Island

Mikael Ejdemyr

(Borås, Sweden)

a bartender's good-night


Sad bar
each night a collection of poems more & more tipsy

sensual female tongues at the board meeting here
& round able knights of the Four-Letter Words

emptied sonnets of glass
elegies of china with some leftovers


The night out is an unfinished poem

it still has a nice smell the long black hair of truth

along streets which are to be left streets to consider as former homes


A raw ditty is noticed here first when ceasing

    Thank you for sharing this with me alone here at home on a Saturday night. It renews my faith in the power of the mind that you saw or imagined this.The sonnet and the elegy resound (wonderfully/woefully) against the 'raw ditty.'

Poem of the Day

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
