Treasure Island

Luke Nicholson


Succint.


If i were to see myself through your eyes.

Call it quits, take up permenant residance in my own, imagined world.

Listen to Fleetwood Mac, not becasue i like them but people respect you when you say you do.

Your nature is in perfect contention with who it is you wish to be.

Become the man i wish by denying my nature? … he’s better for sure but im better in bed.

I like you.

Skin is as white as my favourite pillow cases.

Snow.

If i were to see myself through your eyes, i’d write something succinct.

You. Compassion. Empathy. Snow. Skin.

It would be the definition of succinct.

The perfect quote on a crisp, clean page.

I am not beneficial to your transendance toward womanhood but i am good enough to write about it and you.

Bloom and i’ll write.

Move on.

I am content with the knowledge of you. My white snow pillow cases and something succinct.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
