this is how it was told to me

the lean is where the water hit

the brush is what grew. four years time. the swamp wants New Orleans back.

the cross marks the loss and the dead. rescue team. time/date rescue. hazards inside. people.

empty walkways lead to empty lots. but there were houses here, once.

four years later there is rubble

and there is swamp
