Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

My Probable Fate (REVISED)

Candidate for spontaneous human combustion – it is
13° Celsius, softly raining, I’m warm enough to wear
a sleeveless camp top and short track-suit pants, it’s
better than freezing cold, I’m not complaining, just
making peace with my probable fate after hand-

Washing my darling illegal pink fleeces & enjoying
phenomenological existence; my whole world reduced
to laundry joy; tonight I feel as if the day was wasted,
depressed, yet these fleeces cannot be subjected to
washing machine attacks – it destroys special clothing;

Then I watched A Thousand Ways To Die, realised I’m
burning up – serves me right for failing to oblige my
friend Michelle, she sent Me The Life And Times of
the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire
to read and I failed

Style of imitation realism & fake adult content is not
enchanting, searched text, did not find anything to
relate to – let me prepare for my probable demise &
plan a better life for tomorrow should spontaneous
human combustion fail to end to my sorrows…

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
