Treasure Island

Jody Talibart

(Montreal, Quebec)

Release


In the hushed privacy of night
my heartbreak at last overflowed
bursting forth like a wild river, undammed.

Blindly I searched the sky for the Unseeable,
for a reason no God could appease me with,
each tear drop a kaleidoscope of stars,
every suppressed sob, the lash of anguish.

The universe ran down my cheeks
in a thousand shining orbs,
each one a filled with the endless space of longing
as I silently spilled out a despair
that no starry sky could ever quell, that
no flower would ever soften,
nor sunrise consume.

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
