If you could comprehend:
The beat of the wings of a hummingbird
Weird lizards changing gender as naturally as skins
Summer insect-buzzed hours of indolence
The chirping midnight song of a guinea-pig as sweet as a bird’s
Or the old dead weight of time
I might not be so frustrated with your inner emptiness
And your shit-eating grimace

If you could comprehend:
Unselfish love
The ballet of pelicans in courtship across water
Songs of Humpback whales
The eye of a wedge-tailed eagle in flight
Or the price of eggs
I might not discard your living but not participating carcass
In a roadhouse
On the way to Alice Springs
Just to get some peace from your brain-buggering ignorance
In the outback
