The 23rd April 2017:

Photo of burnt cottage at the Mukutan Retreat taken by Kuki just past 8 am on 23-4-2017

It was a clear morning with birds
Ashes lifted
Beams smouldered
Greys and flames
Small smokes
Out of place in the purity of the valley

Clear were
The tyre sandals prints
In the red murram earth.

 

The men were still there.

I went to find
The round pot with the snake
– Emanuele’s-
And put it in my car
in reverence.

I drove off up -hill.

Five minutes later
they shot me.
