Treasure Island

Joseph Narusiewicz

(9/29/50 / So St Paul, Minnesota)

Escaped the Damned


Her gothic shadow cries like a wound
Breach where the light burns
Honesty beveled into the garden
Moonlight croons in the castle window
Silence in her warm soul
Necklace of silver acorns

I have found her candle
Blue wax cudgels the maroon night
Hunters of souls by the iron gate
Green angels aware of darkness
I cannot sleep until dawn
Their cold eyes shiver in the wind

We have escaped the damned

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
