Sir John Logan Campbell memorial at One Tree Hill, Auckland, New Zealand

Mourning adornment
in memory of the dead
slow-dying flowers

Renewed

I have to go.

There’s no reason—
or one to stay for.

There’s no sense—
or sensibility anymore.

There’s no pride—
only prejudice reigns.

There’s no soul—
so bodies a wander.

There’s no air—
except mechanised oxygen.

I have to go—
for beach breathes life
into my suffocation.
