Treasure Island

Amera Andersen

(12/03/81 / New Jersey)

because of you …


because of you … I am filled with
resplendent points of light that
cannot hide behind shadows
of doubt.

because of you … each new day
is drenched in a glow that will
not be contained in a bottle
of scorn.

because of you … I look forward
to the crack of dawn; watching
it sizzle - sunny side up, to
feed the world.

because of you … there are days
that I am drenched in the
elixir of satisfaction that
reforms ashes.

and - because of you … I have
overdosed on the opiate of
perfection and nothing
can harm me.

poet Henry Lawson


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;
