Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Full of Nothing

Another day full of nothing
might'n just as well die
Oh well, just a thought...something.

I remember when a '.' was only a period
I remember too much
forget too little

The desert's so full of nothing
so clean, unadorned, pristine,
could be afterlife

Bleeding one molecule at a time
with no promisses, no regrets
or apologies

The days are jumbled
junkoid, thrashed
with anger and severe vengeance

Then the fields are plowed
with hate, sowed with unforgiveness
and watered in dust and heat

Bitter is a harvest full of
terpitude and bushells of
no lattitude and understanding

another day and it's full of nothing

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
