2 Poem #5 - Waikanae&Otaki

Waikanae
A house with the word
H O U S E
Written on a fence
(reminiscent of another ‘trip’
Once taken on LSD, the main hallucination
Involved a boat which had the word
BOAT
Written where the boat’s name usually is!)
Waikanae: eccentric middle-class ghetto



Otaki
Derelict rail lines
Leading . . .
To a stone-crushing
Outdoor factory
The train slows
Waiting . . .
At the restored
But unstopped-at
Otaki Station
