where the water lives

Une semaine après Gustav, l'ouragan Hanna s'est abattu sur Haïti, le 2 septembre.

i call on no savior
from the forgetful heart of the earth
what could i save that the wind took from my hand
this is where the water lives
in the silence and the lies
you can see it rise
you can smell it rise
you can feel it rise
time threatened
rain threatened
and the house floated away
weightless
like a fallen leaf
