Treasure Island

GRANT FRASER

(JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

Yu-see-aye-do-see...


Where is
the antidote,
I'm looking
for the note,

a scribbled
fictitious
part of lived experience,
come Genius,

find my way onto
the new world map,

zap! yeah! zap!

rap! crap! whack!

it was you that
suddenly started singing
all queer in my ear hole,

wax! yip! relax!

mud! cotton bud!

I still can't hear you...

so what do you expect
I'll lift up a rock,

and hide what I already
have here,

my feeble attempts to
string some words of hope,

and place some imaginary
avail around you,

I want to place people
first, no matter whom,

like a trillion brothers
and sisters,

all together in the
rummaging blue sea of dream,

yu-see-aye-do-see...

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
