Volcanic Chain

Islands strung out like heartbeats
feel the waters' pulse

Complacent satellites
balance the tides

Seabirds whistle and garble
indifferent to chatter

Long-dormant islands mutter
rumble to the surface

Argue with encroaching foam
meet transforming currents

Wreckers steer the tourist boats
over sulphur waves
