Treasure Island

Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

As an exhausted sea-giant


As an exhausted sea-giant
that
has hooted for so long
that
has swam the churning
primeval seas and
oceans
as an exhausted sea-giant
amidst the burning fires of
distress
the extrinsication of stress
and stress
the extrinsication of despair
and
despair the extrinsication of
fear
and
fear the extrinsication of the
sub-conscious

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
