Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Throughout the night there swam planets


Throughout the night
there swam planets in the
extreme frost of the
heavens
there swam discs that spoke
of despair
there swam humans but not
wholes
but parts here an arm,
there a leg,
there a head
and so on
and so on
throughout the night
no,
no wonder the gales went
no wonder the gales roared
forcing robber-like the doors
and the windows
