Poets speaking up to Adani – Kevin Brophy

 

Visitor

 

Since she arrived in

our small apartment

we’ve become newly

aware of the beauty

of light in this room

at the building’s top.

We show her the view

of landmarks below

and re-discover

them ourselves.

 

The apartment’s larger,

more capacious.

Who would have thought

we had so much room here

for another person’s world.

 

The rooms breathe outwards

open themselves to this

wide-eyed visitor

as if she was always

what was needed

to perfect the place.
