Treasure Island

Diana Rosser


What Do You Want?


Why should I cough myself up?
Spew myself out.
Spatter myself.

I cannot step inside you
I can hardly find my way
around you.

So many words and wants
rattling, chattering, clambering
to be heard.

It is exhausting
listening to the
sound.

but when I look at
wisps of white
in a high cornflower blue sky
my heart stills
and my breath comes easy.
