let them ring!

before us(indigenous

no virgin earth(nor water,dream,idea
more a song remembered from another language
filtered languages,metaphors-a moon base
speaking Chinese.Kashmiri Bollywood
Borders guarded.Flag on the moon
One man cuts/another throws bones into space
Arks on Mt Ararat.Spanish Armadas.Dunkirk
Flotillas of Ferries on Australia Day.
Seas will sink each /all/every in drowning time
same as air downs all planes /earth all bodies
We are prisoners like dogs invisible fences
prohibit us from menial murders/massed,we master!
Armies of fear will boot moon rocks into submission
Orbits of flags tossed like bullets and bombs
If you have one original idea-speak now!
Before the repeats clog all retro
and the past rises tidal
silence over speech
