Treasure Island

Mandolyn ...

out of my cage

today i face the brightness
to hug a few dust bunnies
covering freedom

it gave me a reason
to open the blinds, look at the birds
creating havoc
in the roof again-

twenty four hours
of watching the landscape
fade to a dirty grey-

yet i stay
replaying a certain song
moving dishes in the kitchen
to a shelf
that never gets attention-

wishing i could be a spoon
on top of all the others

a free ride
through the mouth
of a hungry human being-
scratch his tongue as i scrape off
the top of his misgivings

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
