Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

A Back Corner


Looking into a back corner where a D.J. sits,
monitoring his karaoke machine.
Keeping songs in line to be sung by people
waiting for their turns.
Lifting spirits into heights of unknown
mysteries, still unheard from any direction,
finding places in the back corner of a dimly-
lit room.
