island

that day

still stands out

you took stick in hand

and drew the line in the sand

carved clearly the boundaries

I could never cross

even as thin shallow scraping

I knew where I stood

and where I must remain

as the rains came pouring down

the gully

the trench

flowing along that line

eroding deeper until I was an island

cut off from the mainland

surrounded by shark infested waters

you harboring the only boat
