Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Cocaine Beach (Fictional Story)


A hallucinating addict
Prostrating on pristine white sands
Gazing at powdered cocaine
To shovel with his bear blistered palms
As a protracted smile erupts on his weary face
Like a kid in Disneyland
Even parting with a thanksgiving prayer
To his dealer – a providential God
As he pitches a handful of cocaine
Like a buccaneer flipping gold coins
A cocaine haven for a man searching for his piece of heaven
As he snorts virgin sand up his nostrils
Only to sneeze amidst a tirade from the seagulls
Before falling in to a peaceful slumber
Only for the tide to dislodge his log of flesh
As a sanctified life is ebbed to a heavenly oasis
From the mirage of a cocaine beach

poet Rupert Brooke

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;
