cumberland (day 99)

i traveled to the island
where wild horses roam
oblivious to their fortune
they have been bestowed

a mansion once so splendid
lay crumbled amongst the weeds
a doc that welcomed yachts
now broken to its knees

yet in all that’s been dismantled
more beauty’s since arose
as nature claims this island
from the emperors without clothes.
