Treasure Island

Mark Arvizu

(Ciudad De Los Angeles, California)

An American Phenomenon


Lay the board down drive over the spikes
Let your friends out of the trunk where they hide
Travel the humps and bumps to the perfect place
There’s room for you there its just enough space
Run like the singing hotdog to get your cheese and chips
Over priced soda and Cracker Jack Kid
Scale the dunes back to your throne
The hood that will keep you comfortable and warm
The heavy metal speaker tinny and hissing
What more in life could we ever be missing?
As I look at the stars above the corrugated picture
I wonder where one ends and the other one begins

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,
