Pukapuka Poem #40 Torbay Revisited - Michael O'Leary

Torbay Revisited

went   this
time in a car
            white car

into the
monochrome suburb
            white suburb

inside the
kids watched TV
            white television

and when
number two child

looked up
and saw
my black
hair and
black beard
he was
afraid and
went crying
to mummy
- like
he’d never
seen anything
dark in
his life
before . . .
