Treasure Island

Gabrielle Ciarann Roniyah Baer

(July,1951 / Ohio)

Fantasy


Fantasy is
wish-fulfilling,
day-dreaming,
star-gazing,
shedding all fears,
all self
self conscious no longer.

Standing as a woman grown
as high as she hopes to
as deep as a brief span allows,
as wise as love,
as drunken-gay as making love

Walking slow
without false blushing
to that one who needs
but cannot ask her [child]
that one who wants
but will not take her [man]

Giving, touching
holding,
cherishing both
until the man trusts her with the child,
and offers both.

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
