Palm world in the Anthropocene, near Smoky Cape
Black shafts mine the earth’s nourishment
renewed by the urgency of fire circling country
uncoordinated since Botany Bay.
Slender gothic columns stencil early morning,
the library of leaves open once more accepting light
and start climbing for the attention of a sun god.
Life remodels ruins extensively, opportunity knocks
as natural competition has significant global impact.
After five mass extinctions we live through the sixth right now.
