Treasure Island

Michael McParland


Feel the electricity in the air.
It strips me bare.
Embracing that which is so rare.
Enjoy this time that you are spare.
There is so little do you dare?

In this space your heart does race.
With the lights and music pounding in your face.
You feel the rush in disco rate.
Faster now the music beats and pounds.
Electricity in the air surrounds.

We shed our troubles on the floor.
Knowing nothing of rich or poor.
Out here equal to the core.
Electricity through your body pours.
I dig this beat it's really sweet.

In this pulsing we both meet.
Sucking off the electric treat.
Our hair on end.
Electric shocks we send.
Our motivations we don't defend.
We want it now, we feel it bad.
Electricity thrills us too the end.

Every night we come to find.
Electricity that forever binds.
We have no need for common rhymes.
What we have is super fine.
So come and join our electric base.
You'll never find a deeper place.

Don't ask me what this one is about. I'm not sure myself.
I set out intending something else and it took on a life of it's own leading to this.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
