Treasure Island

Diana Rosser


Canned heat


Heavy heat
sighs

seeps through the ridges of warped backbones
s p r e a d i n g
between the blades of shoulders
pressed
shoulder to shoulder
trickles into the crevices of buttocks
pressed
buttock to buttock

squeezes droplets from furrows
etched on glistening temples
drips
rivulets down tired cheeks
pooling beads
across the top of parched lips.

Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
