An Uncrowded Island

A bummer

my summer’s

stuck on an island

once boat that I boarded

struck submerged piling

and leaving marina

it sank within minutes

the ship and its crew

and ‘near everything in it

excepting of course

Five things in a tin—

that worked as a floater

and bobbed to an inlet

most likely because

of rubber within it

—treading the trainers

I favored for running

as well as containers

with cream for the sun

since PABA’s important

but not number one

like papers & pencils

that’s also among

the pot that I cook with

’cause cooking is fun.

    • These things are prolly not hugely practical in the long run–except for the pot–I could purify water in it…but i was thinking more along the lines of a 3 hour tour (a three hour tour)…:)

      I swear, I think it is my QWERTY that randomly “un” capitalizes the “I” pronoun–that, or I am spastically bad at hitting that key..hehe…
