Shanty



Of fibrolite
corrugated iron
demolition timber
discounted paint
of most unlikely colour.
Very possibly illegal
these baches
are accepted
by a coast of rock and sea and shell -
have been inspected
and approved
by
seagulls -
have learnt the language
of pohutukawas.
For a while
now
here
we have heard
these old baches sing!
