The Cost – Anzac Day

Someone must identify ‘the missing’.
The line, drawn in sand.
Fretworks.
A coarse curtain
Of stars
To convene beyond
The bay’s deceptive vermilion.
There’s the Provencal
Wilderness voice – and
Flotsam’s
Interpolation extremities
Powered by
Darkly glowing
Caretaker eyes
Someone must
Identify... ascending.
