The ripping aside of structural memory
this is trauma

and traumatic furthermore is
this tearing away of memorial architecture

which is not the anguish of others

the living in this or that region has no safety
the impact is general
for it is our memory

and it is our region, where
shit bricks and the broken
the architecture collapsed 
on our nest

it falls.

Our archaic experience is now

now challenged
as are the migrant birds above
who cannot comprehend how



an entire island has vanished.


Entire islands vanish all the time.

All time is a string of vanishing islands
their trophy worn beauty

wearing thin.
