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.'

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
