Poem: Amazon under the Sea

“Poem of the Fortnight” spent the summer with my Muse at an undisclosed but very luxe location.  The schedule is so far off that “fortnight” has become meaningless, so let’s just call it the Poem for Now.

Amazon under the Sea
Krause Springs with private island.

(for Bryan)

On a rocky outcropping in a spring-fed swimming hole
he builds a hotel
and a house for his family.

There is an Amazon store
with not just books
but everything Amazon sells—
e-books, real books, music, Legos,
games, sports equipment,
supplies for the house and hotel—
and it’s all free.

A kickboard is his boat
to ferry friends and guests
between the mainland and his private island.

The Amazon store extends
five miles beneath the sea,
a reverse aquarium
where fish watch people
watching fish.

He’s 10 and it’s his world.
