Treasure Island

Mandolyn ...

bonnie to your clyde

rack 'em up cowboy-
saddle back this hot potato
we're gonna put our love
where the sun don't shine

bite my back and call me a tomato
let's play this dough
like cracker jacks gone wild
i knead you to understand
this plan is of high value...

screw diamonds and pearls
we're gonna rob the world
of Talbots and money ill spent,
and we won't recycle those bins-

let me ride the handlebars
while you check the tires
the chain is around a free flyer
that says
'get cash fast! '

no thanks, we'll pass
and under we'll go- where nobody knows
and after we fire a few rounds
of 'wake up! '
i'll sleep in your arms
coiled tightly in love-

(written in 2005)

    I like this title - it is after all the whole point of their story. The film with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunnaway was on TV earlier and I watched a few scenes. Beatty acted so much, too much, you could hear Warren the actor talking to Clyde in his head, trying to get it right. Meanwhile Faye Dunnaway just threw back her head and laughed and laughed and the waters parted for her. I THOUGHT OF HER EFFORTLESS ACTING AS I READ YOUR EFFORTLESS POEM. Soon it all made sense - sort of. Or maybe I should say - Soon it all stopped making sense - sort of. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
