Treasure Island

Leo ...

j. The Black Plant

The black plant
With broken thorns
And bleeding
Keeps building
Keeps building
A clear cold glass
No prisms
No rainbows
No spiders survive
And Silence in lies
Whoever is asking
The plant is helping
The silence
The clearness
How cold

In silence
In silence

I stay away from you

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
