“Attack on Pearl Harbour”

enwikipediaorg
Noteworthy digression
rarely sought
and rarely found.

Distention of air
as with purple ash thought
when a bird-dropping dropped
from a silver-streaked sky.

The bomb-fire neighs
and the water is nigh.

Splayed pearl
harbours nothing
but lacunae of life;
a hiatus of havens
and the beginning of strife.

Written March 2012, Emma Dumitra.
