No man is an island

 

They say that no man is an island.

But that message

arrives in a bottle

run aground in the sand.

 

They say that no man is an island

But I’ve searched

the four points of my compass

And not had to speak or smile.

 

They say that no man is an island

But when the sun

sinks into the ocean

All that stirs is me.

And the fire, but fire

isn’t good company.
