Treasure Island

Desmond Blaine

(25.10.1989. / Dubrovnik)

To the boy who didn't know


when to say
a nice word
or when to stop
talking
and just listen

how to hold her hand
gently enough
or the way
she likes her lips
kissed

what to do when she
puts her head
on his shoulder
to rest

///

wake up boy
boy wake up
make your spirit
fly
and your heart
beat

you know boy
boy you know
everything
just set the things
in motion

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
