this tropical island:

wholly owned subsidiary

of Del Monte, planted

with commercial pineapples

 

this tropical island:

movie set for Disney,

digital instead of real

and tinted much too pink

 

this tropical island:

just right, Goldilocks grown

into her bikini, bestsellers,

sun umbrellas, Jaguars

 

this tropical island:

paradise of sorts, source

of natural spring water

in bottles locals can't afford

 

this tropical island:

temporary, inhabitants

seeking new addresses

above the rising seas
