Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Hiding In Daylight


Lengthening shadows falling upon my pathway, lending themselves
to interior images, hiding beneath them even in daylight.

Conquering all facets of surprising factions in this life,
striding down great walkways, lengthening shadows stepping out
of my way, making room for me to get by.

Trying at times to trip me into remembering images that I have
been hiding all these years.

Traipsing around and over them, becoming immersed in their frightening grasp.

It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
