to the mass native burial ground under the new court house

From corby
to
the islands
to
the americas.
From the
glanmore
to
saint thomas
to the
boathouse.
From the rich in
the
east to the poor
in the west
from the
shannons to
gore and his wife
and this
town named in
her hamilton
beauty.
From the bad water
of the dead
to moodie and
spiritualism
from
mason worship
to the grand
trunk
and the underground
tunnels and
freedom.

-this is a town of ghosts
haves and have
nots…… what the hell
though
what
the
hell…….
