Treasure Island

Justin Tallman

(September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

If I went away


If I went away
to an island with coconuts
listening to the sea shells
singing the ocean's secrets
to me

If I went away
deep underground
digging holes with the moles
tunneling all the way
to Chinatown

If I went away
high in the sky
dancing with seagulls
from the puffy white clouds
casting a shadow
saying hello

If I went away
in a tin can through space
sniffing the stars
and tasting the milky way
lips pinching
The nurturing teat
of God

Oh if I went away
if I went anywhere at all
would you miss me?

Inspired by the song Dark Globe by Syd Barrett
