How Should We Do This?

Not an island
Not surrounded
Nothing lit every hour of every day
No ship gliding out of the dock
No blocks, no perfect squares
No mantelpieces on which to place picture frames
No clocks, no idea of seconds
Or lines of fire spreading into one’s sleep
No sleep, no real sleep
No lullabies for sleeping
