Treasure Island

Justin Tallman

(September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

Attention Whore


There are massive amounts of bodies
moving
creating fleshy noises
screaming for the stars
to bless them with their Hollywood presence
yearning for the miraculous fingertip
to caress their poverty nipple
and hoping their attractive skin
is contagious
sitting on their servant knees
their foolish mouths open and ready
for the greatest ejaculation
the world has ever seen
wetting the puppet tongue
and oiling the gears and gizmos
and fueling the paparazzi machinery
chained at the submissive joints
presenting their naked inferior bodies
hoping to get slapped around by the alpha
before the webcam of degradation
praying that in the humiliation
after a million views
a billion uploads and downloads
a shit ton of likes and shares
regardless of the many offensive names
replacing the one uttered by the parental lips
praying

Everyone knows who I am

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
