Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


the vengeful poem


you ask if you can burn
a house
then to answer it
you burned one

the family house
where your mom died a week ago
was ashed

you father left
unable to stand you

you handed your arms
they will not take it
they confess
they still love you

when the police officer charged you with arson
they put you in a place where no one knows you
they still protect
as their own brother by blood

all that you have in mind is an escape
you want to burn another house

one day

you told the man next door that you can kill him
he told your brother
who asked you about your scheme
of your first premeditated murder

you said you want to try if you can really kill a man
with your bare hands

you have become uncontrollable


now a lesson must be given to you

you will be captured in this poem
it is inside a rectangular perimeter

there is no exit

now our world shall be calm
and it will be peaceful upon its bed of grass

because
this poem also knows how to kill

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
