Treasure Island

Urshula Davis

(August 15 1995 / SC)

Weak


No strength to write
/
/


I apologize
I place vowels back in their rhymes


///

No strength to write
I apologize
My hands are weary
So is my mind

///


Though I perfom the ability
Though I dive in my misery
Creating patterns of sound

/
/

--
THIS IS NOT PREMEDITATED


//


I am generated volumes of words
Pour like water


/
/


I apologize
My eyes are velvet
Legs are tired



///



This comes not
This flows not


-


This is natural
Me and poety/Meant to be
//


And I let it be in me
Let it sweep/mop/The un-drained
like sponges do
//


With no strength to write
I apolgize
//



And cough up free verse

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—
