Haynaku (previously published):


flood
a chained haynaku:
(written after viewing Mac Betts' painting Helena River in Flood 1986)

falling
with Alice
into strange depths

past golden lakes
spinning tops
springs

ballerinas
spilt ink
jack in boxes

bright orange flames
white feathers
flying

dense
blue forests
hiding white rabbits

while floating on
oceans of
green


tree
floats by
give way sign

the flooded pub
full of
drunks

woman
with umbrella
wading through water


 

no parking sign
banked up
cars

deck-chair
street party
on dry roofs


rains
ground choking
under the deluge

motorists
atop cars
waving for help

muddy
school oval
among broken desks


 

children
rowing boats
across the road

rescuers
risking life
to save stranded
