Treasure Island

Lee Mack

(Shelbyville Kentucky)

We are here Ellison


We’re here Ellison –spiritually moving
Over spots of light on the vertical floor
Shut off from the reach of outstretched
Holy hands too good to be true to the
Senses - too impavid to appear invisible
In peril of poverty’s disease in the
Grip of aristocracy shielded by vaccination
Protocols eugenics and clinical trials-
Militia controls and bounties on guardians
Outliers and the fourth estate –literary
Advances flow through ATM’s to third party
Progressive rhetoricians and outlier favor
Critical blame drowns out poetry rather
Than real invisible constraint
Fear rises from laws of men rather than
Nature orchestrating the feel of jazz
Released to love coming down –Bigger cannot
Dance without it nor the classical will to
Oblige the music playing force fields -
Plains and edges sliced out of the otiose
And comatose reawakening of fear of fear
We’re here Baldwin –visibly raking the
Coals over the fire next time.

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,
