Alexandria

 

Long before Bali was born

In the storm's light

The waves crashed,

Against the notes of gamelan

Playing black magic,

To the monkeys

In the forest,

And the shadow puppets

In her squat.

Somewhere in her candlelight

There was a temple,

Where the killers 

Had not been,

That the tourists

Had not seen.

She wrapped you

In her sarong,

To enter night's song.
