Treasure Island

Mandolyn ...


'you belong to the sea'


you find me, thick skinned
tangled in a fishing net
my hair sticking to your palm;
tracing blue moons around my eyes
you sigh between each breath

my lips are jelly on your tongue
curious of a salt water flick-
lifting my chin, rueful, you say
'you belong to the sea'
and toss me to the ill-tempered tide

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
