Come up, Southern Cross


News is of New Zealand
reconsidering the flag
again, the famous uni-
on jack in the canton,
stars of that southern
cross on the fly, out-
lined white over blue.

  For young people in
  wine there remain 2
  paradises, and both
  of great linkage to
  the seas. I hear, a
  Prime Minister fav-
  ours a silver fern,
  on a black field. I
  don't see paradise,
  in obscure foliage,
  much less radiance.

What is a country for,
I often wonder, if not
the fulfillment of the
patience of its stars?
