Treasure Island

Godfrey Morris

(August 1,1982 / Kingston, Jamaica)

Great Adjuster


This body has been torn

beaten up

but in some strange way

has been restored to equilibrum

Hurricanes have roared

Earthquakes have ravaged

Pirates have plundered

Yet still stands this vessel

to tell this eternal truth

with weighted breath

For through all ills

life has not ceased

and with the hands of time

all wounds are healed

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
