Treasure Island

Jeffrey Regullano

(December 1,1983 / Zamboanga City, Philippines)

Red one


Out of a hundred roses
I plucked you
Red one.

Your sharp thorns
Are real
Red one.

These wounds
On my palm bleed
Red one.

Gibberish!
You are just a rose
Not love.

Red one.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
