Treasure Island

Justin Tallman

(September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

Thoughts I had on a crashing plane


Smile
this is the crash
the plane falling
ball of fire
into the ocean

No self control
no control
release the shiver
the trembling
the laughing
maniacally
into the atomic
explosion
feel the burning
passion
of the last seconds
of feeling alive

eyes fixed
on the flashing
of life
a slideshow displaying
every regret
before the comedian's mic

It's all
just humorous now
how every breath
felt so important
to the point of suffocation

Every lie you choked on
snuggles under the blankets
warm and forgiven
because honesty was always
a merciful
son of a bitch

All the pain inflicted
and self inflicted
and every realistic slap
to the disgusted face
are now
reduced to historic moments
where lessons learnt
oppose the backward graves

Just smile
you're on camera
not really
you're just dying
crashing
into the waves

You'll splash upon
some uncharted shore
where there is only you
and your silly life
dancing around a difficult fire

Those burning memories
once thought web like
ensnaring our love
will warm our bodies
like drunken laughter
on the pointless nights
we like to reminisce
upon

We'll never control
anything else
than the muscles
of our lips
so smile

You were there once
in the fray of it all
in the magic

Letting the magic
conquer you
is in fact
the best thing
you'll ever do
with your life

So collapse
into the empire
of your smile
like nothing
meant anything
at all

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
