Treasure Island

GRANT FRASER

(JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

DRY


Imagine a man
strangled to reach
your bare wet branch
for a drink,

A drop of water
screaming out
of it's mind!

Look for Christ's
sake - please find another...

And you dying of a thirst,
that you barely conceived,

Then stumble along,
bash into things,

while a trillion necks stretch,
stretch - stretch forth,
like good elastic,

And drink down so fondly
the fast flowing screams...

Into mouths, like great big drums,

Violently gushing!

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
