Treasure Island

The Images!


When you try to touch my gentle heart,
Please make sure your fatty nails are clipped,
The fresh bruises and the old scars a lot,
That can't be seen through eyes the naked.

When you drink water to saturate me,
Please make sure you don't adulterate,
The fresh bulges and swellings are a lot,
That can't be seen through the eyes, the naked.

When you breathe to fill my alveoli,
Please make sure you don't suffocate.
The vessels are collapsed with cancerous blooms,
That can't be seen through the eyes, the naked.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
