Uneasy

Gillena Cox, TT and Vaughn Seward, CA

 

A hot, hot day
downtown; the yellow hard hats
of fire fighters .
/gc
Thick, huge, enveloping smoke
an unceasing rumble pervades.
/gc
/vs
Moments of tremor
the earth shifts around
beneath our feet.

Notes: The fire in verse 1 is based on a fire that took place in downtown Port of Spain, Trinidad near Woodford square when the yellow poui trees in the square were flowering; also at that time the fire services had recently changed from red helmets to yellow ones.
