High Definition Tsunami


















Flickering
mango, amber, nut brown,
men thrashing around
dark water swells,
ice white water crashing down
scouring once ground.

Green faces, violet lips,
mangled cars, beached ships,
khaki men and guns,
white, clip-boarded, ant men,
yellow earth movers crawling
through once towns.

Silver tongued men,
smart, fawn words,
bronze faced ones
glide past dead men,
zebra-striped, sleep walking men,
red eyed, silenced once again.
