Treasure Island

Joseph Narusiewicz

(9/29/50 / So St Paul, Minnesota)

2am Rain


Implement the lotus predicate
Ruffled in the nest of change
You deny me
Bravado as soft as tears
Lonely acoustic religion
Gardens owned by the fall
Shrunken visions of scorn
You are owned
Cordial temple
Impervious idealism
I have left you an orphan
Your lovers are sterile

By the rainbow moon I sail
Flurries of jazz rivers
Evening is my court room
Spandau guards smoke
Madness brings no closure
Fences become friends
Only the sea within crashes
I sleep again a free man
How I love the 2am rain

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
