in neon Tokyo they wear surgical masks, TV footage of African children in European football shirts standing in typhoid waters,

the last phone box in town was destroyed last night, the last pencil snapped
and from this angle and all the planes look like their about to plough into the knife like skyscrapers

a shoe dangles from a telephone wire
three deflated birthday party balloons snagged in a tree
her birthmark is
the shape of Pangea

we are living in unwritten novels

all shifted by the plates
invisible movement
glacier slow
