The Cracks Are Fertile

By | 15 February 2023

Cockatoo screech cleaves
sedate suburbia
rough-throated cackle
sky thrust asunder in hot maw.
Wings tear seam of fence lines
cut and stake becomes tangled brawl
racket seeps edgeways, uncorralled.
Dandelion loosens tectonic concrete
becomes planet of seeds that ride wind
and lodge dreams of fields gold-weaved.
Body acoustic that reaps joy
wishbone and chamber of soft flesh.
Our hearts want yawp and song
to breach awkward casings
and make red ecstasy.
