Treasure Island

s./j. goldner

(March 2nd,1984 / USA)

untitled 2


cast my graduation picture into the rain—
watched as the glass shattered under the stars
and the frame dislodge itself from my face,
as if to say, “At last.”

    This poem just hit me so hard - perhaps because I've just had my graduation recently - but more because you capture the breaking away so brilliantly and painfully. I am a huge admirer of your work.

    As a metaphorical throw away it's perfect, but I hope you kept the photo, such memories are prescious indeed. My son missed his altogether yesterday, cus I wasn't there to see him shine. I was gutted. But I see your reasoned response very clearly. Well done. Tai (Report) Reply

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—
