The Television Says There is Undiscovered Treasure by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

 

There is buried treasure in the walls
and I start digging,
looking for long lost pirate treasure
out of Port Royal;
gold necklaces, silver bracelets,
jade talisman’s from Asia…
and after the drywall
there is a layer of insulation
and then more drywall.
Then there is an angry
neighbour
through the wall
who threatens to call the cops
and does not want to split
our treasure.
