Treasure Island

Sandi J Holland


Black On Black


Black coffee poured into black mug
Looks rich beyond reality.

With unabashed addictedness.
I close my eyes in expectancy.
To sniff almost seems enough,
Except my tongue waits
To drown itself
Again and again
In the black bath
Of ecstasy.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
