Inspired by the celebration of Thanksgiving in America (actually called Day of Mourning by indigenous people). Created in homage to the millions of displaced people from Syria (etc.) and the crazy course of history.

This piece imagines the boat filled with 'pilgrims' called the Mayflower.


Incessant creaking timber
the monotonous slap of the waves
no seagulls for days as the scurvy blurs our ways of knowing
Seasick, not a lick of luck
as the familiar shores slip sight unseen away

Behold new turf, new planet Earf
new land new lines new hands new lies
we come as false friends
eyeing your turkey hens
and the sweet strong legs of your lasses
we'll cover gladly with molasses
our hands will creep, we'll make some passes

your turkey hens
with the legs
