Detector Buoys

" Detector Buoys "

by Suzán Jiván

Detector buoys
track the movements of tsunamis
triggered by red dots
as violent earthquakes rocked

setting whole oceans in motion
along faults buried deeply
beneath the seafloor
some long dormant
within reports of multi-story
shelters under construction

painful for a culture
as a flock of white doves
flutters above the rubble
beneath wave-swept bubbles

blown by hundreds
of thousands of others
as the party broke up
with the wrenching
and tearing of muscles...
