Who has seen?

by Christine Marshall

Who has seen the waterfall
  the boy’s diary
    the relationships
      the shifting topography?

Who has seen the devotion
  the persistent concern
    the sperm whales sleeping
      the radical misinterpretations?

Who has seen the first chapter
  the historical problems
    the Przewalski horse
      the children holding press conferences?

Who has seen the unforgiving thorns
  the titles that explain
    the partisan feelings
      the everyday?

Who has seen the working-class onion
  the lax building regulations
    the glittering space junk
      the weight of plastic?
