Treasure Island

Troy Ulysses Davis

(08/23/70 / Newark, New Jersey)

Labors of Scribe treats.

Writing poetry, graffiti, cartoons.
Fantasies of writing manga looms.
Development of graphic novels
in one take, rough draft desires.

New circus act, working jack
evolution to productivity max.
Workaholics never grow exhausted.
Nonsense is being employed, empty coffers.

Aloftness desires, rebuttal jaded.
A manuscript walking through city slums.
Assessed by buzzards who would love to
charge for the appraisal, plugs.

Chaos and Charleston, ostracizing.
The citadel revived and colored.
Policy driven, economically deficient.
Monarchy or Monastery, extortion mechanism.

Lamentations layered in luxury
Comfortable cants, craving a certainty
that has always be obtained
Redirecting myself, mindful of casting blame.

    Sometimes, that is all a writer can do as his emotions flow through.
    Becoming a tit for tat, creating a acrobat, a juggler, and jester.
    Not accepting that you can't but instead, understanding that a due is not necessarily given regardless of passion or astonishing fashion.
    An awe is short lived, and is more often then not repeated.
    This can make one easily feel defeated.
    A retreat into darkness for time to think, to debate, to equate.
    Easily relating to the story thats is written.
    Finding both a new perspective, and elective. (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
