Deep Sea Diaries, August 2013

Standard

*

.
the small land
where all the bones
lie has a wall of stone and concrete

.
if I stand on the north side
I can see little roads among
graves and rooftops of small chapels -far away

.
south the sea enclosed
in its gulf a whole cloud of tiny flies

in front of the eyes to disturb my view

.
to remind me of inevitable decay
behind me the sky clouds are sparse
light and filled with sunset hues

.
and the town wall -the town of
the living – I make sure to say
has a big boulder fallen off

.
with several small stones
on the street where cars drive

.
the church has scaffolding
except in the front

.
