Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


CINDY'S NIGHTOUT


she likes her hair
red and her skin
pale
not jibing with
moonlight

big white flowers
hang in her room

a black pumpkin
with white leaves
has two rats ready
for her dreams

obviously she believes
in Cinderella

obviously she is waiting
for the fairy godmother
to do the magic

when she decides finally
to spend her night out

looking for her prince
wanting to fulfill her dreams

you might notice
she is already ready

all day she practiced
walking with only one shoe

she runs and laughs at the same time
inside her black room

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
