A climate change poem for today:
Still Life With Sea Pinks and High Tide
by Maura Dooley
“thrift grows tenacious at the tide’s reach.
what is that reach when the water is
rising, rising?
Our melting, shifting, liquid world won’t wait
for manifesto or mandate each
warning a reckoning.
Ice in our gin or vodka chirrups and squeaks,
dissolving in the hot, still air
of talking, talking”
————–
A poem a day – part of the Keep it in the Ground climate Change Initiative – curated by Carol Ann Duffy
