i wouldn’t advertise it

swing islandif i had
an island
somewhere in
the sea
i wouldn’t
advertise it
or name it
after me
i wouldn’t
build an
i wouldn’t
invite guests
it would be
the place
i’d go
to rest
i wouldn’t
want to
live there
new york
is always home
i’d just drop in for visits

when i need to be alone
it wouldn’t be connected
by wi-fi to the net
a swing would be
the only thing i’d get
