A Relief For Those Without Shoes

Around me are the volcanic cones of Ijen
Merapi on the northeastern edge of the
Plateau and Raung on the southwest
An island so small and full
Of volcanoes, yet life
Feels so easy
as sulphur
is what preserves
Life; found in every
Cell of the body, hair,
skin and nails, ointment
For every ailment, as sulfur
Gives relief for eye problems,
inflammation of the cornea, burning,
Blephitis, conjuctivitis, in fact almost
All that takes its toll on those without shoes
