Treasure Island

Cin Sweet Fields

Guitar In the Park

Wind's angry blowing
howling and coughing up
it's gap toothed icy spit
at me i reckon
at me, on me, thru me,
my wools soggy wet,
anyway, damn bad choice
and this gibson,
damn big clumsy
wooden box of a thing it is
...ahh...for a washed out she
like me,
Heartless choking snapping strings,
It just ain't in me
I haven't, can't muster
even a pitiful quarter note
of layed out perfection
to feed it
it's royal majesty-
blood sucking parasite it is,
i'm not carefree or star enough
sure as all hell ain't cool enough
to pyre it though i would,
you better believe it I would too,
Chunky clunky awkward shell
it knows everything about me
hell, all it does is watch
and take notes
i'm a big fat Fake with it, well
between us
without it too, but i've skinny fingers
its all in the having it
you know the I got it look,
Holding it all important
like a big dead hooked fish
For a newspaper photograph.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
