A new story from Hometown Project


Of the ocean temperature rises it creates those wins that stimulates those winds and that makes the more powerful right what and as they gain force of course they capture the eye of various monitoring agencies who first assigned them a number as they are growing in intensity and then if they grow both in intensity and then cover the distance to habit it areas they acquire and name and basically every new year a roster of names is becomes available and hurricanes the acquiring name do so because they become a threat to the human communities right and they start with alpha right so the first one and they go all the way down although down and then certain names like Irma or Maria or Dorian or Katrina or you know Harvey we now have quite a list of them just in the recent period they they become historic and there those names are permanently assigned to tutor never real fascinating I want to go Google like do they have the name set up for this year or with who gets to choose that's national mailing Pheonix and atmospheric administration in a while and I don't think they they divulge their roster and he's delighted with them but they have tracked statistically they can't they have demonstrated now that hurricanes that are named after female names of course that was an innovation that came with the women's movement in the mid seventies until then there were no female hurricanes but now the NO a a has to be very careful in how they name hurricanes because people are less likely to evacuate for hurricanes named after women than they are for men wow that is a anything is less interesting so it would be great if you would be willing to wait to read a poem and this would be a poem from the blue full yeah this is what I call the title poem because the title popped out of me in this poem and became the title for the book in the exhibition it's called you want to tell them things say you reach with your grass stroking their feet you say this is a long story the unfolding of it or it's and it's up to you listen listen you say while they look and look casting your gentle touch to the wind you drive them away by hurricane you fling your sand from one side to the other you pull the fruit from the trees scorch every leaf rip out the lilies you raise the tide suck them in a little too deep again and again you pull down the dock but they returned none the less they're looking never stops you summon the clouds you shower them you tear at their clothes the air is thick with your voice guttural howling whistling you call in the raptors to feast on the song birds a ritual of carnage by full moon at perigee you hammer all night glaring you Stoke the sun burn their round faces eventually they go melting back into their blue falls the way of all the others you don't know if they learned your language or if they could even hear you on to the next guests you'll never hear them say our island is a shuddering microcosm speaking for the earth you'll never see this the fruit of all that looking with its hopeful stone what's come of them now in the flash after you that's great that was a poem called you want it you want to tell them things by Julie chase Daniel and that is part of the blue folder project that Matthew and Julie chase Daniel did together and will be up at this an exhibition based on the blue Ford will be up at the CCA opening at the CCA this coming Friday the sixth so in this poem who is the U. ugh you're the islands you tear them you talked you tell them it in every way you can what you've been subject to I see that makes
