Treasure Island

Shaun William Hayes

(May 30th / The edge of the New Forest, UK)

Alien Territory


The scene is white
Nothing but purity
Add to this a few stout conifers
Still green?
And there it is.

The copse where we played
At Custer and Sitting Bull
The hill
And the dip
(Where my brother once took liz

Whose dad runs the pub)
All gone
Not just covered - removed
Alien territory
Snow

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
