Dog’s Breakfast is an an amazing and expansive collaboration of creatives and artists that had both a online and print presence.
On the theme of RESILIANCE resilience I wrote two poems, one short and untitled about growing through things, a small reminder of the power of change, the other about my fears, for the planet, for my city and the hope of rebirth.
Climate change is never far from my mind, being a consistent worry of mine since the age of 7 (yes, I was a really annoying child) so writing these, while slightly sad, was also a good way to adress these worries and how they might be overcome.
In a few years, love we’ll be sea foam voice lost, no kiss spilt from shampoo drain to the sea we’ll be bubble boats sickly green down a dry Thames all methane new life, fish bones in a few years, love it will be dust wild orange skys and we’ll begin again.
I have grown into lovesick bones from pavement cracks between my ribs bloom roses freshly thorned.
