A poem, “Finis terrae”









A short poem that my friend Angela Doherty revised for me (thank you Angela, you do walk your name!)

Finis Terrae – The end of the World

Jellyfish spat out by the masculine Tasman sea
curled bent
dead thus innocent

Beach-fleas bite your harmless transparence
they shall also soil soon

At the end of the world
liquid kisses solid, slaps it
Everything happens far from here
the world rotates around itself

At the end of the world
decomposed turquoise jelly becomes water air soil
inoffensive ignorant
World is reborn
Earth begins, day starts:
incipit terra, incipit dies.
