The Orchard, by Larry Economos

I will sleep in this orchard

By the sea

Until the end of time

May come to me

I will filter my lungs

With fresh clean air

Until my body finds repair

I will turn from lies

From thieves

And hives

Of bundled darkness

And wicked sighs

I will trumpet and dance

On windswept sand

Where fires crackle

And old men haggle

Over stars, and moon

And stolen shackles

That bind our feet

To crabs and jackals

That steal our lives

And loves

I will sleep in this orchard

By the sea

With starlit sky watching over me
