Treasure Island

Aeronius D. McCoy

(December of '83, Year of the Swatch™ / aboard the flying gunship Reagan)

Wallowed Spark

The nights whisper hazed melodrama
A plucked string
Bereft of flora and fauna
Mind plotted in coordinate dirge twang
Mathematically spelled out on repeat

Could a spark ever trace Apollo's
crushed gypsum with these DOAs
Rumble with trees fallen, fields soon
bless a flame's gaze
Unknown-recognized slash-and-burn
the city forest blaze,
backwards, aghast, where's the revelry
in the symphonic showdown

The walls I tore down
to see your divided face
Blown breezes, like sound
Child's carousel underwater
This darkside appetite satiates
Blakean ghost rumpled on two wafers

An ember grazed on
A harmony's forest
Solipsistic dais to be born
A sproutling tilled in the urban crowd
Each elevator takes phase
When the moon rises,
You sing and drop twenty floors

Below tornado-ripped, snow heaven cascade
Stark white under shadow,
Of earth and golden doors
When it happens, wine
flows down corridor's mystery
Trachea-to-cornea adorned,
Rapt and spellbound in fruiting vine
But where's your bittersweet flavor pulp.

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,
