WHAT’S SHRIVELING UNDER THIS SUN
What’s shriveling under this sun
what a raisin of an earth!
curdled hearts and minds
floating to the top of the black lake
mutants rear monstrous heads
on the horizon
a tsunami never experienced
a poison yet untasted.
as if with cut tongues
we scream from the depths of our throats
wipe out the evil before darkness falls
heavily, like a hideous chunk of coal.
– Diane Sophrin.
