Treasure Island

Garrity Guenther

(9/15/90 / Chicago)

march 7th


I remember the seas of inquiries
and slippery plastic halls
I remember silent messages
conveyed through thousands of air molecules
and flickering eyes
I remember a hands-off world
and candles snuffed at birth

I remember fake concern
I remember lab rat status
I remember picking up the pieces
Of a world that wasn’t mine
I remember washing away tears that I had no business seeing
A doormat at age thirteen

I remember pills and the thrills
Of a world that was finally mine
I remember making rules
And controlling lives
For lack of the same in mine

I remember suffocating
The lives of all around me
For lack of breath in my lungs
I remember running forever

Forcing my body to give up
Because at least then I knew

I remember feeling alive

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
