Katrina (in memory of the French Quarter)


Hellicane: Poets Respond to Hurricane Katrina

ebb and flow, crash and blow\r\nwater rushes to and fro\r\ngive and take, provide, forsake\r\ncenturies toil laid to waste\r\n\r\nbubble and boil, rocks to soil\r\nthe timeless power waits...\r\nfor little winds, spins and turns\r\nto rouse the giant snake\r\n\r\nhowl and blow, flash and glow\r\nthe sword, the bow, the catapult throw\r\nswirl and twirl, rip and hurl\r\nthe angel casts the crippling girl...\r\n
