Treasure Island

Mandolyn ...

twilight is a bitch with no teeth

you can do that one whistle, the famous one
where you put two fingers between your lips

i admire that in anyone.

i have to throw things to get someone's attention
and sometimes they still don't look up

when you dropped your coffee mug on
her kitchen floor did she say get out or
did she drag her fingers through your hair
and tell you what a devil you are
smiling like a vamp, ready to suck
the chocolate off of anything with a caramel center

she did the second one didn't she.

i left one clock un-turned
just because you told me you liked it dark
after five and now it's light till eight or so

my bangs are long again
which means we're out of white rice
and something else broke in the back room
something leaks, squeaks and
i swear i hear a mans voice in the attic

netflix is horse shit
you said
the shit of a horse
i said,
but we still watched Dexter

    Love this! The contemplations of one suddenly without their other. Subtly humorous and so well written! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
