Treasure Island

Katerina Val

Tall Pines (the last seconds of a hung)

Tall pines
huge excuses
terrible endless cries
and then silence

continuous cessation

Tall pines
infinite shame
undefined cries
last flick of passion
last spark of a need
passionate again
to wave goodbuy
with a blooded tear running from his closed eye
to prove his innocence
to prove
his regret.

and an innocent soul
but bloodstained hands

incessant cessation

Tall pines
and strained innocence
unexcused cried
unfounded words
unfounded screams
and laughs
that penetrate his chest
inflated with half-finished pride
and remorse
that make the pines twisting around
like he's intoxicated
like he can lose his shelf again
for a while

"Pray for forgiveness my son
pray to rest your soul in god's arms"

Strained innocence
Stained innocence
and a sarcastic giggle
"father, I am alone"

Tall pines
and the hung cries
tall pines
and they wave to him goodbuy
as they laugh or fearlessly smile
he cries
he dies
under the small tall pines.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
