#289. gulf poem

June 10, 2010

distance
is a close thing
intimate and wild
calmly alone
the osprey
soars
dives
eats

your hand scraped
shark teeth out of the sand
glistening in the sun

memory gone from delight
to sadness
and anger

    it is indeed a nature crime. and bp should be penalized for this mess.

  3. I totally feel this poem. I’m from the Gulf Coast not too far from where the spill has affected. It’s saddening that the coast people’s worst fears have come true. I like how you can put this into words very nice.
