Treasure Island

Suki Nakamura

(november 8,1985)

for J.

if you are there somewhere
reading my lines
let me know
give me a sign

think of me as a little bird
perching on the sill of your window
i am singing a sad song
do not close the your door

make me a poem
like the shape of your hand
put there some grains
on your heart let there be a water fountain

for i am hungry let me eat
for i am thirsty let me drink
for i am lonely comfort me with your embrace

and then when i am full and quenched and happy
it will be my turn
to sing you those happy songs
perhaps i too shall sing you the song of love
