First There Was Only Waves

by Julie Rousse



first there was only wave
solar wind in the desert

rocks & metal

then there was more waves

therefore outside signs of life
human activity

(screams & whispers)

and more waves
voices again

cycles of the city
(subway & pathwalk)
(opera in the gutter)
all of it finishes in the gutter
washed away by the rain
