Treasure Island

Mark Heathcote

(22/03/66 / Manchester)

Take me my green iguana into your heart

Take me like a spent blossom tree
O wind your roots around me
Dress me with your hands
Let us mingle together in these grasslands.

Let your leafy, fingertips, lace over me.
Let your kisses, firebrand me
Before you can even, memorize
How passionate - my pulse sighs.

Take me my green iguana into your heart
Let me uncoil there my sweetheart
Let me shed my skin and disembark…
Like a star’s core let me light-up the dark.

Let me rest on a burgeoning bough.
Strong enough to withhold the tears I’ve endow
Let these Oohs take me sighing now!
Back into, full paradise blossom - somehow.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
