Treasure Island

Sylvia Loven Carter

(June 13,1963 / Dallas, Texas)

All In One Place


All in one place
waiting eyes
hurt, pain

No one really speaks,
you look at them
looking at you

All in one place
walking canes, walkers
wheelchairs.

Snack machine
Soda machine

Security guard/police

All in one place

Gold real and fake
Silver real and fake

Diamonds real and fake

No one above anyone else

Old, young, babies, toddlers

we are different ethnically
All in one place waiting

smiles here and there laughter

skinny, fat
sitting, standing

all of us are waiting at 4917 Harry Hines Boulevard
waiting OUR turn

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
