Treasure Island

Gianni Vespucci


What It Feels Like


When I'm high I feel all knowing
No telling of where I'm going
Because I'm always floating
With my wandering mind, With my own kind
Not saying I left everything behind
But I'm completely
Exploring the new world I discovered
And living most heavenly until I'm recovered
From this feeling I've overcome
Used to think it was overdone
Until I got back into smoking some
I lose sensation in my face
Leaves emotions with no trace
Like I have just eloped
And my entire being sloped
Upward to the top of the echelon
I see clearly as if I scoped
In on pictorial aspects of life
I've never been so valorous as myself
My being is feeling most rife
As it begins to flutter off the shelf
I start to realize all I never knew
All from these colors of purple, pink and fluorescent blue
Although the world around me is looking criss cross
And reminds me of all I lost
I ensure you at all costs
I can overcome these troughs
But I'm going to relish in this pleasure
As I take advantage of this treasure
Of a most symbolic figure
And hold onto this leisure

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—
