Treasure Island

Miroslava Odalovic

(Montenegro)

I'm an EQ test personification


stranded on percentage foot of untrodden

ether one spleened across the city streets
(they run arteries to fast for me bells
dingillee dongelleethey ding too loud)
ether two vast across the skies
bluelike blacklike spilling clouds of white

call
call through the curtains falling sideways
speak
speak like curtains folding an actor
too naked to declaim the text
call
call like curtains falling apart
a silent choir to veil, unveil

in an unknown zone zero emotion pronounced
by frozen lips stammering teeth and feet protruding
left and right scattered my step gave in

in a stolen second only a butterfly was left in time
as it knew how to feed itself on a moment
wings resting still felt the feel ashen colour mute

spelled the alphabet of the first of hearts
a secret emoticon of a single cry
cutting through the edges
these fibers of words to common spell

a textile patchworked upon the wounds
to prevent the sunlight from bleeding
into a song of children's laughter
that always will be the first to win over time

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
