where did all the koa trees go?
where did the groves of warriors run to?
were they burned and cut down
were they sold and turned into paper?
were they written on and disguised as law?
tell me where did the kanaka go?
did they retreat into the mountains to reside on slopes?
did they get pushed away, forced to travel on foot when they only knew how to float?
did they get pushed down into the dirt where the koa trees once stood?
and did the koa and the kanaka melt together to hold each other through remembering how to be a warrior and a human and a poem.
