Treasure Island

GRANT FRASER

(JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

Umbilical


And how often
do you leave
the planet,

I mean have
you been out
there,

outside the body,

left your brain
back in the lobby?

once I get away
from you, corporeal,

ditch the
sperm factory,

it's like I never
was, what I was,

imagine all those
cables of choice,

limitless,
pretentious resolver,

society the big
hidden quiet pervert,

wants you to watch
this space,

infinite cash flow,

I know...
I know...

it's all about choice,

or what you are,
and who you were...

they don't need dice,

it's an outcome,

and you will surrender
your honour,
for the sacred vacuum!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
