Treasure Island

Ben Paynter

(Midwest)

a blueprint of how it was


photograph this now
because I don’t think it
will last for very
long.

paint this picture with
night and a hint of
gray,
and hope
that it will stay for
morning.

record this moment
so I can play it back
tomorrow
when everything
goes back to how
it was.

and now
do not wish upon
my
star
unless you wish
to become it.

But if it had to perish twice,
