Treasure Island

forward-looking easter


How many times will Joshua
shun
my sword and
blow
the smear from o my earthed auditory lobe,
plug
it back like scion-bud
before my sheath-spurning sword
cease
to tear it again
out…
so I never ever gain the dual audit
that alone
hears
the soberer other half of his case
that relentless
beckons
me like the conquest-drunk Ojadili's flute
from the meretricious rotundity of the apple
the treacherous charm of swine-fellowship
the Janus-lustre of the scarlet silver pieces
the arboreal lure that
draws
a disillusioned Judas
the carnal cry on his left arm to merely lumber back my lobe—
rehash of the crimson chorus to bail me Barabbas
towards the o sudden soulful Longinus-cry
that solely
secures
me his Joshuadom?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
