Treasure Island

David McLean Mathews

(Colac, Australia)

Fizz


The Catalina Flying Boats
Swing low
Catching the sou‘easter
On a right bank
They talk to three fishermen
Doubt in their chins
As they contemplate launching
The sea starting to fizz
A backwash wave
Catches the top of an 8 footer
Iridescent and turquoise
Toffee over head
Heaven on a plate

And pays us but with earth and dust;
