The First Small Place

Small Places Number 1: a poem

Terry Bain
Mar 18 · 1 min read

An overturned box
shelter

wet hands clap all
around, feel

faraway thunder
underground

ants call
“here, here,” ring me,

round the rosie
their first

hero, then dam the sanctuary!
— leaks

flood the hoard — dear god,
all dead

trampled, unnoticed
in our escape.
