Paradise :- The Events on Bali 2002

Moments
are lost
or stolen
in the night,
when all is
subsumed
in disbelief
at the suddenness
and feel of
the rush of air,
a surging blast
a shrapnelled swarming
overhead
and around;
that leaves us pinned
to impossibly
perpendicular
streets
staring
back at parts of
ourselves
somehow
detached
from what
we thought
we were,
and moments
are lost
like those
limbs above our
heads on
impossibly
perpendicular
streets,
starting to
crazily
see-saw
righting us
on our,
where our feet
should be,
taken away
from us
with
disinterested
surgical grace
in the night,
when
our moments
wept for
and hoped for and
wept for and
hoped for and
wept for
were
lost…
