Treasure Island

Stan Petrovich

Lost Love

I have lost my love of mankind, for his predominance and unstable
stewardship of our inadvertently unstable planet earth;
the errors that have occurred cannot be reversed: ask the polar bear,
ask the space junk falling on our heads. Ask the dreary sun
that will fade soon in the clouds of carbon we created.

That one has children and engulfs them with love
is no more that a indiscreet lesson for the coming death of us all.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
