Treasure Island

Amy Hang

(12/3/90 / Denver)


I move right
He moves left.
I feel the light
He takes another step.

I had to smile
His face stays straight
I take a look for awhile.
His love for me is fake.

I try to keep up
He takes few more steps
I'm going nuts!
What plans in his mind did he kept?

I look for another way
What did he see?
I don't know what to say
He locked my mind so it can't be free.

My heart was tightly wrapped
He tells me that I thought too late
I was trapped
He says check-mate

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
