Right from Wrong – a poem by Serena Mayer

Right from Wrong

the notion that salvation might
the limb that could not be felt
………..the thing in itself
…..the electronics haven’t
the stuff worth debating
…..the idea that we
………..the towns unfriendly
the list of acknowledgements
the boy who was not to play
………the current tallest building
…..the strength of the waves
the coward with fear
the journey might
…….the flow of everyday life
the weather has got to do
….the walkers who roam
…..the harbour island
the stillness is absolute
………………the modern age
the further down the visitor
…….the sky in every direction
the car the protagonist
………….the peaks disappeared
…….the hidden children
……………the growing industry
the townspeople on an excursion
….the outdoors can be enjoyed
…….the heart of the rose
………….the time being
….the surroundings
……the power to effect
the distant land of overtones
…..the woods or along beaches
….the artist uses her hand
……..the going
