it ushered us in

and spread out for us its table

thick and warm and pungent

lapping light and lustre

round us, regaling, pie-eyed

passion shimmered

like the sun on lilting sea.

Then the undercurrent

swung in

chopping at us, hacking

our legs - on the beach

they couldn’t see us falling

sucked like sand

still smiling almost!

But draining away,

bleeding from the land.

Now headshaking city

sighs seeing two torn

Twisted delirious like shot deer

conscripted in confusion

to shudder

and pant flailing

for air

suddenly everywhere
