Treasure Island

Pasquale DiMeola

(Newark, New Jersey)

Dear John At The Willard Hotel


By substance festooned in glimmering motion
Mannequin at the insincere boudoir vanishing
Mirror to mirror infinity cloning a frantic shriek
May dread an occasional drooping teacup
Ever fragile the plumule of chrysanthemums
Thirsting for lack of water or bloodstain in
Corners of drawing rooms emanating charm
With murdurous predilection given to draught
Lacerating the corpse more than needed be.

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,
