Treasure Island

Alek Lenth

Bella Donna to the gods
metal towers
aloft tapered mountains

like...look at the crows
black desert crows
are only noticed in the snow

what a photograph does better is
show you what I saw

and a camera captures this:
the color texture

but for the curve

consider them
to show
to feel of them

are pulled
and placed

O'Keefes 'Bella Donna'

confession is a mode of poetry
romantic is a mode de la poesie

and (et)

arrangement is our mode of poetry

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
