Treasure Island

Rokie Nokishi

(Tennessee, baby!)

The Sun


Shining down upon us
Scorching the ground
Lighting the sky with its brilliancy
How very exhausting
The life of us
The death of us
The light
The dark
It is the difference
Rising when it pleases
Setting when it decides
We've had enough
Overbearing
Selfish
or, Just the sun
