Poets speaking up to Adani – Jennifer Harrison

 

Fairy Floss

 

 

spun to its finest skeins

with all the strands of the past

 

cohering

around a flimsy balsa stick

 

this soft numb form

is like life’s airy drift

 

the flimsiest tangle

of  DNA

 

you, me

the taste of becoming

 

the idea that sex

is about melting

 

each other

under no one’s tongue

 

 

Jennifer Harrison
