Treasure Island

Noah Body


There Will Be Not A Trace


Close the doors, secure the locks
Latch the windows, lower the shades
Off with the lights, no more shocks
Shutter my life, do it in spades

Let no one see what's real and inside
Lock them away, keep them at arm's reach
The mask is my shield, behind it I hide
Let no one know, there's a story for each

Very soon to a head will all things come
Plans come to a head, it all falls into place
Tiny careful baby steps taken one by one
And then left of me there will be not a trace

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
