here we fall | Coffee Bruise Thursday | Reuben Woolley

Great to see two of my poems published on Michael Dickel’s Meta/Phor(e)/Play and accompanied by his excellent images.

Meta / Phor(e) / Play

coralled gates the trees no more


Reuben Woolley


for the Great Barrier Reef, officially declared dead after 25 million years

coloured

birds don’t fly here 
not even 
	                & a dry 
time we have

white a forest

moves 
	                no longer

	                no

birds	       no

song


coloured

birds don’t fly here


rust & old machines


Reuben Woolley


here we fall

                                 the same

the stories 
of 
strange.their shining 
faces broken 
now / feel

the opening 
the silent doors 
on doors unfold

                                 it’s time 
to haul out 
our lost pieces

our histories 
of shattered shell.come 
to it then 
& in our dreaming
