Treasure Island

Andrew David Dalby

(17th Of March 1967 / Brighton East Sussex United kingdom)

The Eye of Zeus

He stares:
Pure cosmic furies
Within ceaseless
Eternal spirals,
That roar with thunder;
Within an alien
Broiling sky.
And with
Preter-natural strength
There slowly turns to form,
A hideous thing;
Eternally unborn.
A single blistering
Haunted eye!
Blazing red
Yet with the innocence
of a child.
And he simply stares
Never blindly,
Onward and outward,
Upon mere earth
And her mortality.
Yet, from the corner
where there might be seen,
A likeness of a tear-duct,
There slowly fills and falls,
With a fragility unknown,
A small single pale tear…
