Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Adjusting Involvement


Wanting to hear something fast, loud and constant,
so they play I got friends in low places.
Not what I had in mind, but okay, I'll adjust to
the involvement of rhythm, trying hard to hold back
when wanting to race forward and be gone.
Electric watts hitting me slowly in trends of
country-western rhythms.
Insisting on revving forward, instead, staying back,
waiting for melodies to catch up with my mind as it
expands in triple time through writing.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
