Treasure Island

Lauren Miller

(October 5,1991 / Omaha, Nebraska)

Resistance


Bring me
the revolutionary,
the painter,
the poet,
the folk singer,
the original artist,
bring me anybody who stood for anything.
Bring me anything that means something
Give me an orginal
Replace your carbon copies
with substance
Replace thier demands with
Resistance
Show me love
That is unforgiving
and replenish it
Bring me anything that means something
Take your People magazine
Your Twilight
Your Angeline Jolie
Your false trends
Your money
and burn them
Take anyone who ever stood for
anything
and
never
gave
up

and bring them to my stake
Today we hang them up
high

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
