Treasure Island

Graveyards


what i want
will keep
me
from being buried
in consecrated ground

what i want
has no light at the end of
that tunnel

what i want is no thought of you
or God
just worm fodder

now that is an end
i could really put my faith in

i want to take a leisurely stroll
off the edge
of a flat earth
i want to go
where there is only flat rainbows
or no rainbows at all

a place where only a black wind
blows
a place that feels like
love spent

a place where love
no longer haunts me
like ghosts in graveyards
