maori love song




dark plaited hair
moonlit and shining
slid down her back
in beautiful repose
watching the haka
men bravely dancing
bodies loud and
showing the strength
of a maori love song

repressed





it wasn't our fault
the two of us
we followed the rules
obeyed our elders
said our prayers

it wasn't our fault
the pair of us
we tried to forget
the torture
of the every day

it wasn't our fault
childhood duplicity
no one
picked us up
and ran

it wasn't our fault
