Dundee Park

Skull cave, Dundee Park – June Perkins

Skull cave
Home for bats
For superhero dreams
The white horse wanders.

Swim away
Escape in floods
Nothing can contain them.

Where crocodiles once roamed by lotus
Pontoons are planned
And safe places are cleared for people to camp.

Lina shows us the steel nest
Keeps it to show scientists
Wonders if it was made by a rat.

Is it possible
That animals take the man made
And incorporate it into their defences?

A barramundi farm
Is suggested by the landscape
And the flooding that comes when it chooses.

The owners plan
Step by step
New beginnings.

Dundee Park – June Perkins

    I’ve been sharing a lot of poetry in preparation for the Magic Fish Dreaming kickstarter launch. This is a poem on Far North Queensland, but the poems shared are from older collectionsm mostly blogged or shared with friends.
