Treasure Island

Streetlife


1

In spring four months dusk
Lighting my homeward evening walk
the stars with deliberate ascendancy
Adjust the horizon's cloud line

2

In pub through glass interiors
The fragments of ignored sound
No - some one sips entertainment
The raucous of a seduction
All teeth and outcome eyes

3

Calm at the idle memorial
Girls humble to their mobiles
Fashion bears a naive stomach
A gentle curve predicting gravidity
Beyond masks of innocent chatter

4

Marcus passes - over the road
Loose with alcohols ambled asymmetry
A pleasant of unco-ordination
Bemused smiling within his world

5

On the other pavement discerned
Arms and legs oscillate silhouttes
Beneath the yellow light fall
A tangle of fecund expletives
Resolve about some resolving route

    Your poems are like paintings (Lautrec) . We aren't shown everything, but that's why we love it. A peak through a hole in the fence. Distorted but beautiful. Fuzzy around the edges like a good marijuana buzz. Your walks home are pretty interesting! All teeth and outcome eyes is a favorite line. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
