Culled From 'a Migration To An Island'

Rating: 5.0


3.

We pluck the flowers of happiness in reading
in writing we vomit that we consumed from the bowl of others
We die with a passion
We live with it in the coma of time
We may say, 'only poetry retained us in that island,
And only poetry drove us to sacrifice ourselves for a hungry sharks
That great us with tgeir tails on a waving form.
