Treasure Island

Satori with Alice


Words why is it,
I want to tear
your meaning off!
move up against you?

Get my mouth into there,

As Good's skin is fully
drawn to slip on,

But once again it's all but feint,
before it gradually disappears...

Or what I think I know,
and lost in the mediocrity,
I go -

And treasure is a chest
always about to become
more empty!

Of the true thing
we're hell bent on digging for -

Freedom!

But your not as pearly white
it seems,

And always looking at us
with some obscene guarantee,
to shake that whole instruction out,

Satori with Alice...
Satori a fallacy?

A dance through the circle mind
of chance...

Where everyone dreams, it seems,

in that dorsal moment, then back under -

'A ripple'

    Wow. The first few lines grabbed my attention and drew me in for the rest of the piece. I really admire your style. I wish I could write looser and free like you do. Its beautiful to read. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
