Treasure Island

John Kipling Lewis

(3/12/1968 / Manhattan, KS)

beyond the pale


If i go pale beyond the pale
will my family follow?

I can only wish
for the feelings of love,
fleeting as they seem,
to hold fast to my skin
and the adhesion to
the homunculus and
succubus...

to keep my slipping past
their hold into the pale.
Way beyond the pale.

Far south the lift,
