Treasure Island

Mike Garcia


Treadmill


round and round goes the bloody great wheel
whether you change
or stay the same
lifes treadmill goes on turning
inexorably
getting off is the name of the game
but not through sexual indulgence
or alcoholic stupor
maybe tripping for a little while
or dissolving the world in a puff of pot
but you cant make it go away
not unless
youre feeling real morose
and have recourse to the 'needle of death'
embracing my old friend
overdose
plus ça change plus cest la même chose
round and round goes the bloody great wheel

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
