With ash, tears, and pain
when home, possessions and cattle
and missing children.

O god, where thy face
you hide
when our old people
Merapi dust bathed
their white hair sticky
with ash, tears, and pain
when home, possessions and cattle
and missing children
indeterminate shelter
either in refugee camps
or float together
cold lava, rocks and mud
River Code
swept away and drowned
to the South Sea
