Treasure Island

Matthew Roeser


The Last Waltz


When 's the last time you saw a movie
And lost yourself in time?
The elegance of the word 
Translated into vision

An image sunk in
An elephantine blackback
We crowd at the door
Waiting for your stupid response

I can't die fast enough
Or live hard enough
Wasted effort 
Wasted breathe

I account for no one 
I am a bastard 
I am sea mist 
And you are a energy vampire

Why do I give?
Another dead black crow
Another spent and empty cartridge
So give me what you got

It will never be enough
So suck it and unzip your dress
And let's climb all over each other 
On this kitchen table

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
