Treasure Island

chelle santos


all the pretty girls


all the pretty girls
their matching bags
& expensive footwear

all the pretty girls
sip overpriced lattes
& flip their hair.

all the pretty girls
have made up faces
but empty heads,

all the pretty girls
refuse to eat
they smoke instead.

all the pretty girls
with whitened teeth
& glossed up lips

all the pretty girls
who have phones
at their fingertips

all the pretty girls
slouched in chairs,
are out for show.

all the pretty girls
are all dolled up
with nowhere to go,

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
