Writing in Whangarei

Rotondel de la Villette

Soon, these disputed quays will go
From under foot to form the past;
This metered Sandwalk turned to dust
By callow seas still far from view.

For swans that never question how
Closure could come to winter’s tryst,
Soon, these disputed quays will go
From under foot to form the past.

When pseudo-cinephiles allow
Others, for faith, to be undressed
And fishers of the self are lost
In neighbourhoods described in two,
Soon, these disputed quays will go.
