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 Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
