imploding
Weathercat image kidnap in situ of the poem

the sky
this dusk
wreathed with
din and squawk
of mynah birds
packed in by
the dozen
some dropping
out fluttering
upward back
into the scabbards
of dark under
the fronds of the
phoenix palm
safe as houses
there in the dry

out to sea
rangitoto

holding to
that line
under
which
it
darkens

ShoreRangitoto of the dusk
