23feb7 The Day After: Fragmented Reports - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

we have damage
might be worse?
with strong after
shocks my street?

flooded

I have water
from hot water
cylinder but
will ration

eight
pulled
out alive
from

Pyne Gould
Building
three from
CTV building
that is only
a block from work

a few thousand
treated for injuries

PGB totally
collapsed
trapping killing
200 workers?
CTV building
120 missing?

22 missing
in Christchurch
Cathedral
under spire
roof collapse

forty-eight
were pulled out
from collapsed
buildings alive
overnight

some people
pulled out
without a scratch
other people
had limbs
amputated
to get them out

scares snares
nightmares
not so easily
swiftly removed
