Poets speaking up to Adani – Richard James Allen

Study for an untitled landscape


What do we do?

We hold back the darkness.

In other words, we fail.


Fail into night

Like perfect angels

Of diminishing light.


At least our battlegrounds,

What you know as sunsets,

Are spectacular.



Richard James Allen
