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
            white-haired

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 . . .
