Treasure Island

Byron Headrick

(April 16 1972 / Scotsboro, Alabama)

Crutches and Dreams


I’ve got a twisted view of
Pain and passion
Intertwined among the
Masses. I believe in
Sky.
And sometimes the sky
Believes in me.
We are intimate, patient
Victims of over ambition.

Verbatum, rhubarb sayings
In broken phrases
She
Haunts my dreams, but
I still believe in
Sky
And sometimes the sky
Still believes in me.

We all have crutches.
We all have dreams.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
