for all those lost in the flood
Where is the room from which I heard
the slow dawn of parents, the mutter
of palm fronds sweeping the galvanised roof?
Wind, rain, vandals have picked clean
the flesh and bones of this house, this childhood.
Too late to see the rippling surface of that deep,
murky river, dancing everything down
to where catfish forage. Only the stubble of interior
remains, wishing you were here when the day rolls in,
a day like any other, like a wave, romancing the crumble.
