My sister was taken by the water
Carried away by the sea
I don’t know what she looked like
Mother Ocean, why’d you take her from me?

There was moss on the roof
As you were climbing
Your fingers could not
Grasp the lining
You slipped and fell
In the early morning
We had no signs,
No gentle warning.
I was born
Decades later
Still to wander,
And waft and waiver
Still to cling
I shake and shiver
I am blown by wind
Yon and hither

I run fast
Across the highway
I dodge steel horses
Coming my way
I reach a meadow
Of reeds and grasses
Of silver, gold
And champagne glasses
The soil was pert
With withering babies
Their faces trashed
With AIDS and rabies
You just slipped
The blood flow slowing
The wind it hit
And it kept on blowing!

Blow from the water to the land,
You don’t have to give her back.
Bye, bye,
Natasha.
