Treasure Island

Not Disney World


This is not Disney World- This is something better:
This is nothing that the tourists read: this is my homeless fitt,
Finally coming around to third base and then on to home:
These are my wishes making love to Alma:
These are how I make love to her, and call her out when she is
Not at home,
While she has been so conditioned by the starshine and by their
Chrome;
And this is my fairytale meant to persuade my queen to put away
The greenness of her cannons,
And to remember all that I might mean, while the turtles are making
Love into the strange calligraphy of seashells,
While the airplanes are leaving their ex-lovers and going off to
Explore the rhythms of newly unexpected folklores:
This is my burning house for her- Alma, this is
My everlasting wish for you- In your beauty is capture all of
Woebegone Mexico swimming upside down:
The virgin of Guadalupe swings her amusements upon your neck,
And the airplanes and the hurricanes roar,
While I am only good for recording the sincerity for my feelings for
Your lush and un supposing sounds,
While your extended family sleeps next to you, and I am left to crawl
Nearer the sea,
And to take her lips to mind, which is and always is a poor supplicate
To drowning into you.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
