Treasure Island

I AM THAT MOUSE

(Detroit, MI)

Letting Some Light In


i leave
without warning

and appear
without cause

two of my flaws
don't ask

me for more
be happy

i came back
please don't attack

thats what
pushes me away

and keeps
me in hiding

i do the deciding
no choice

do you get
no power

do you hold
i can be so cold

you know
i can see that

i notice
my true faults

my personal assualts
you need

not blame me
i already

have it covered
and what i have discovered

is that
i am wrong

and i
don't really care

but i need you there
when i

am lonely
and when

i need love
still it's you i shove

into a
dark corner

worrying about
my well-being

and who i am seeing
it drives

you so crazy
i tear

you apart
i break your heaart...

and i don't know why...

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
