OUR AFTERLIFE

you awoke
naked on a tiny
deserted tropical island

fish, coconut and breadfruit
and fresh water

lovely beaches, indigo sea

and a man there
who just happened to
be me

who listened to you cry out
against the inhumanity of
this punishment
(an eternity
of loneliness
and
of boredom)

but for me
every moment spent watching, observing you
closely

could not be
a small but sweet taste
of the promise of Heaven
