A Long Walk Home through Downtown Vancouver

1 February 2013

downtown here
is just like my city

in this city
poems are written on parchment

everything important
is said in silence

around each sharp corner
soft green edges

am I walking too quickly
or running too slowly

to English Bay
where low tide strands deadfall

this city
is nothing like downtown home

in my city
poems are written on pavement

everything silent
is said to be important

around each sharp corner
soft rivers’ edge

am I running away from
or walking right into

downtown Brisbane
where king tide swallows mangroves whole
