Banksia Integrifolia

1 February 2018

Stencilled and still
coast banksias—ubiquitous
in your suburb—

are ogrish
in their sculpting.
With no impulse

toward symmetry
they undermine
your streetscape.

Where the asymmetry
of gums is elegant
on the whole, a banksia

bristles.
It will not say
consider yourself at home
