Maureen Korp – TRANSCEND Media Service

Seeing something there
a glint, quick light rippling
in the tide
half a heartbeat closer
dark, silvered triggerfish
back and forth . . .
back and forth

ships and planes and submarines
reconnaissance, surveillance—coastal
helicopters, back and forth, back and
forth . . .
in the tide, the triggerfish

in the boxes up the hill
all the numbers
all the bones, all that they could find
thrown upon the beaches
by the tides
back and forth, back and . . .
forth . . . nothing ever ends


Maureen Korp lives in Canada.
