The storytellers sit with one another
In the shade, enjoying small strong coffees
Or ‘libres’

Those black polka dotted domino's
On the crumbling wall a photograph
of two bearded men
exchanging amused conversation

"History will show I'm right" and
"The old man and the sea"
Storytellers tell...
about thousands of refugees. People on the run
a pig-filled inlet
and sharks and adventures.

And that only the storytellers will remain,
but that there is none left to listen.
