Treasure Island

Justin Tallman

(September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

A midwestern (anywhere) love story


The fool
like sheets of glass
breaking easily
at a greeting
cracking at a friendly smile
the hopeless
cliche

wanting a moon light kiss
cowering from the tongue
the stars hide in saliva
the moon
chokes beneath the apple

this midnight romance
drunk and stupid
covered by a trash bag
choking in carbon dioxide

The same ol' dance
the same ol' tail
smacking an ass
already spoken in local lore
spoken as
stories of love and war

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
