Treasure Island

Wicked Mike

Sexy Butterfly


The gentle snow of a full moon’s face
caressed my soul like dew-wet lace
Whirled away into that purity of a fantasy moment
by the rose beauty of your debonair smile,
I felt the loosening of my chains of exile

Your inner voice spoke to me from the world of one eye
It was the pained plea of the golden butterfly:
“Help me, ive been hurt”
My arms, like story castles, yearned to enfold you,
this swelling emotion for a presence so new

Flung into the other eye, I became a dove
and raced your currents of longed for loves:
magic, mystery and animal freedom
From ahigh, I watched you ride
the black stallion like nature’s wife,
fulfilling desire, having sex with life

Now, I’m by promise with you entwined,
a response to dripping diamonds
that left our friendship refined
Walk forward with me, holding my hand
We’re outsiders of imperfection
searching for the wells of perception.

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,
