Treasure Island

GRANT FRASER

(JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

Lustful


A raging hunger
is how I like to think of it,

For when it comes,
it's no holds barred,

I can't control the world
for it,

Like my breast filling
up with woe,
in a great big whirling
basin,

And the dragons in my
blood chasing mad fire,

Or some drowning innocent,
along a bay of hot frothy milk,

Or waiting for that secret sly
piranha of smell to attack,
the senses,

Hovering before a very small
particle or crevice,

Of what is even private
beyond the self,

Somewhere deep in there,
the molecule implores,

Like a strange new flower,

And the scent naked,
opens up like a big moist door,

leading out...
into a mind of somewhere else

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
