Treasure Island

Justin Tallman

(September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

From Where I Left Off


I look among
the fields
of gorgeous women
flawless
But yet
nothing catches
my eye

The search goes on
'til I find
a rabbit hole

All that's there
is an irritating
Wonderland
with irritating
characters
in whom
I have no
patience for

Still continuing on
I come across
familiar footprints
which are
(in crime scene
fashion)
labeled as
'Evidence of
a circle'

Frustrated
Tired
I make the choice
of idleness

a few centuries
and a regretful
weekend
go by
before I
decide
to continue
where I left off

As time has passed
much has changed

In the fields
some of the women
have grown
unique faces

As for
the rabbit hole
the characters
now seem
less obnoxious

I'll give this
another try
only this time
I'm going to walk
in a straight line

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
