Seven Cities About to Sink


Chao Phraya

Tsunami travel dreams


New York,

Broadway underwater tours,

Lady Liberty’s wet bloomers,

It’s up to you.



We have a problem

Major Tom

Can you hear me?



Play umbrella chess

The skyscrapers shrink back from the sky.

Check mate.


Mexico City

Eight inches a year

We dig our own graves.

D í a de meurtos.


New Orleans,

Playing the blues like in the final scenes of Titanic

Electrifying trios,

not so cold but just as wet



The gondoliers still sing as they ply the waters

their old city below the mirror of the sea
