Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

A Blackbird


Chirping, chattering, whining, yelling,
sitting up in a tree.

Seeing his black feathers amid the green
leaves of a tree.

Way up high so as not to be seen - his
voice carries - his presence is made
known by him.

I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
