Treasure Island

gordon nosworthy


ear conceived a thought
it fit no recognized world
proved no recognizable fact
was ignored or ridiculed

thought gestated
suspended in ear
forced itself into a shape
knit with alienation&creation

ear created thought
thought was mythos
myth adopted matter
became logos

mythos in a chariot
was the chariot
was the power
driving the chariot

ear rode the chariot
overawed by his own myth
which over time&distance
remade its maker

over fields of finance
mountains of desire
thru gatherings of humanity
as stethoscopes they flew

thru the printed word
thru the airborn data stream
beyond the data surround
where souls travel on holidays

into the valley of reality
flew the chariot
like a whimsical apparition
resembling our hero ear

where his own thought
formed the walls of his own myth
the hills the contours of love&death
the chains of success&failure

&ear cried out
what the hell is going on?
as ear was absorbed
& the hive didn’t even notice

&so the story goes
as ear lost sight of those around him
all the empty spaces
filled with believers

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
