Treasure Island

jonathan Juarez

(Orange CA.)


The omen of a clock strike
denizens the men pay attribute but
the sinistral artist pay no mind as
dew drops devour the hot bed
the dream is only a dream

majority maintains the whimsical promise
comedic incessancy an inculcate perverseness
messenger of phonology a surgeon of reality
predicates vagaries of the smallest talk
all laugh monodies

men of letters sharing random noises
to calculate where the snow melts and
where the rain freezes
philosophizing the kindness of death
nobody is naked

    Yea, truths abounding here: the dream is only a dream
    all laughs monodies
    philosophizing the kindness of death

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"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—
