Haibun Poem: Amnesia

We found cameras in the rubble
of abandoned buildings
and started shooting.
We lived in ways which never matched 
those plush surroundings,
demolished before our eyes
to make way for the steel and glass –
an inferior civilisation tethered in debt.

Tell me what is real
Our amnesia is profound
Wake up to the dream
