Pukapuka Poem #41 Untitled - Michael O'Leary

Untitled

looking from the train window
towards Mangere Bridge
between a redundant Southdown
                        freezing works
and long ago re-aligned Otahuhu Station
                                                                                    at sundown
see the beauty of the natural cliffs
                                                                                    of the harbour heads
reflected in the stillness
of the Manukau Harbour
as shades of purple
enhance the land and water
the train pulls southward out of Westfield
