Treasure Island

Mandolyn ...


show the weather where you like to put your kite


'this is garbage, give me a trash bag'
i give you two, because i want to see how
much music you can stuff into a dixie cup

you want me to react to your new song
like a 10,000 degree sunburn on the 4th of July-
i want you to react to me laying down next to you
in a body bag-
but instead i say the coffee cake is burning
and the ceiling fan is freaking out

'whiplash, baby, that's all it is-
you forgot how much i love to hear the wind'

Poem of the Day
