the sky is on fire

Scott-Patrick Mitchell


submerged, perth canyon

burns. flocked, flame churns


, turn into vapour, escape via

water clouds between the tide


& field where flight paths fly

, hides sky in sunset death cry


. we see a river aspire to set

course higher, but a saltwater


default sees it caught up in

logistics, how physics transform
