Van Goghs Mother said of Vincent
'futureless wanderings'

The trees tremble to capture light
swaying back and forth, shivering
as if the land had a fever.

Hallucinating life, replicating
a Van Gogh sketched earth
bruised beauty, shell-shock.

It's not who or what or when
or why did this happen?
you can put away your conspiracy
theories, man and time done this.

This is not a them and us border-
line or a checkpoint charlie poem.
This is no mans land, drive on but
be careful theres roadworks up ahead.
