Keith Nunes (New Zealand) lives beside Lake Rotoma where the two of them undertake a great deal of reflecting. He's had works published around the globe, has placed in competitions and been a Pushcart Prize nominee. His book of poetry/short fiction, "catching a ride on a paradox", is sold by the lunatic fringe.

Gone with the flow

the island is sinking,
we hold ancestors above our heads,
there's no breathing about it
but who wants to give up
when it's everything
the whole town washed away with the river,
washed clean
for a day

what of the silt –
all that dirt dredged up
when we thought it was buried for all time
