Treasure Island

Nicholas Peter


Sunrises


The sun didn't come up,
this morning.
That's what you said to me,
as I awoke,
and watched the star itself,
creep through the windows.

You told me Helios' great treasure,
was asleep,
and not even the moon,
could seduce him out.

I was confused,
had you lost a sunrise?
You said yes,
turned over,
and went back to sleep.

I walked away,
maybe to eat,
maybe to piss,
I don't remember.

I never noticed,
though,
that empty look of yours,
following behind me.
