Day 12 — compass points

Today the weather forecast for various parts of the Australian continent is like ticking off a climate change checklist.

compass points

in the south
rocks have been thrown
across roads
as the sea 
eats earth

in the west
houses have crumpled
technology tamed
dinghys beached on doorsteps
& dead fish
airdrowned on lawns

in the north & east
fires & floods fight
to see who can 
consume the most

while in the centre
dust impersonates 
storm clouds mocking
much needed rain 

destruction
is messy
