Treasure Island

Vera Sidhwa


You Kissed Me When


You kissed me when, I begged the world,
When I kneeled to it to be kind.
I never mattered, it didn't matter,
For this world was not mine.


This world was everyone's brutality,
For the sake of keeping down humanity.
It brought my humanity to humility.


Whatever I was begging for,
It didn't matter at all.
For whatever puzzle I had to solve,
Didn't work out.


This world is everyone's brutality.

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
