Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Asian Cyanide Fishing


“symptoms eyes white
skin seared fish dead
in two or three days”

coral dead from cyanide
industry fishing suicide
Indonesian fish genocide

global curbside ringside
stupidity fisheries riptide
resource fish stocks died

depleted
shanghaied
worldwide

welcome event
horizon dead
empty saline seas

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
