Treasure Island

Mandolyn ...


my eye has a patch on the inside


i want to ship with your friend
and sail sideways
anchor our brains
wash ourselves silly

bring a ruler-
we will measure our laughs
as we joke about dragons
eating bacon
and throwing up men

and if i practice what i preach
will you dance with me?

on a slippery rock,
suffocated by moss
we can play your favorite song

you can step on my toes
and break me
when i'm not looking

i'll bruise for you-

after the ruckus and movable feast
i will squeeze your mouth dry
then tuck you
beneath the waves~

    Found it, under the waves. Right in front of my eye!
    Hold on, I have Smog on the line, he doesn't like jokes
    about dragons but he eats bacon and throws up men.
    You made a friend, just don't burn him! (Report) Reply

    With all the action going on I missed the part about the patch.
    I'll give it another go! (Report) Reply
