Dirt's Edge


Dirt’s Edge
Losing someone is sad enough
When you do it in the ocean
Out comes dirt’s edge.
You don’t care because it’s not you,
But if it were the opposite,
Out comes dirt’s edge.
Plastic bags, popcorn cups all inside their mouths.

Out comes dirt’s edge...

    Wow! This image caught my attention before I had a chance to read. What a powerful piece of writing this is! Your choice of image resonates well with the writing; what a great selection. What makes it more profound is the clever use of line repetition. Ka mau te wehi, Grey Lynn Scribblers!
