Treasure Island

Edwin Cordero


Stormy Night


I'm by the sea
Next to crying wind,
Which ceased to be
A peaceful breeze.
Vacationers are running,
And I begin
To hear sirens
Warning me.
Yet I stay—
I stay and wait
To hear the ocean's
Currents break.
Yet I lie myself in place
To await the end
Of unruly fate.

The tsunami fails to come,
And I'm undone
By the extensive wait.
I approach the ocean
For its sake,
And then I am awake.
