Awaiting gunsmoke while avoiding the Irish suite.
When will he be home? When will this be done?
Dying in the north and in the west.
We are all dying at various rates.
The Japanese island once again Hokusai,
dying in waves.
The earthquake slowed time
then we sped forward to save daylight.
All I could do today was gather sticks
and go through the picture motions,
reflect while collecting winter debris
and make fire
to dry out the last winter damp
like today’s sun on Sendai.
Tsunami swept the debris to sea
humanity washed clean away as the rumbling earth
And now the reaction. Nuclear. Extends the reach
