Those who keep wild animals in cages are captives within the confines of their own restricted minds.
'You always kill the things you love.' The Brexiteers.
The Walls one physical manifestation of mental insecurity.
Nurture and Nature. Evolving.
December Summer. Groups of Pukeko hatching, blue. Little Spotted Kiwi on islands few. Kokako, not so many, haunting song. Southern Ocean Albatross glides calling. Kuakas mew across the Sound. Moas a distant memory remain.
Groups of people occupy motorway carriageways.
Banners waving, courageous. Celebrate, marching.
Jubilant, turn highways into bye-ways for a day.
Truck driver on the entry slip road, angry, missing the best part of life, 'but I need to make a living, to survive.'

An economy based on environmental degradation and consumption will soon eat it's reason for being.
Pickles and Preserves.

air dried and cured.
Anthropocene strata will tell.

(approaching a plate boundary fault line)
If everything is art, there is no art
There is only existence and
art does not exist.
Never finding who we are.
Lowering the bar.
Base metal resources from the earth forged.
Rewards cast for moving a little faster than the person next door.
Never before has such a sustained violation of the natural world been witnessed.
Now, where are those glasses?
Fisherfolk treated the Yangtze river dolphin as a protective symbol.
Natural habits lost in a haze.
Paddling, flimsy craft, approaching a plate boundary fault line, art-world passengers gulp, hearts racing, shielding their eyes. Plummet precipitously over a spray licked, innundated escarpment to icy melt waters below. The earth's curved horizon stretches out before them. Skin thin atmosphere. Gasping for breath.
Swooping low on lakes and rivers, to farmhouse eaves, gathering swallows nest.
Festival dreams in streams drawn, stumbling across fields and shaded trees, to crucked roof tithe barn rehearsals.
Drums improvise, a driving beat recalled.
Traditional garb, toasted politely, welcomed, imbibed.
Expectation rises, endorsements, glances exchanged. Notice released, pastoral performance.
Scripted, choreographed, recorded. Frenzied terminal phase, in destruction and grief relayed. Cascading showers, branches sway, discarded burdens, leaves torn, flooded trenches spill.
Damage assessed, assigned. Fantasy explodes, expires.
Flags of allegiance lowered. Dispersal.
The parody moves on, with a raised finger and an obliging wave of the hand.

Beware of those offeringsolutions, into which you may be dissolved.
Systemic collapse. Extinctions.
Mens rea incubators.
Solutions, scapegoats thrive.
The wind shifts gear and sighs.
May. Out in the cold.
'Doctor, I think I have lung cancer from pollution.'
'No, you have treatments worth more than prevention syndrome.'

Sequestrated weapons returned to earth.
Metals, organic matter, fuel restored.
Distilled imagination released.
Tar, coal and oil to shells recycled,
to autumn composts reversed.
Circuits, grid patterns in mycelium clusters decline.
Plastic organics remain imbedded, volatile.
Screen mists in waterfall cascades eroding.
Wings in migration beating as one.
Whales and dolphin pods answer the call.
Coral colony fronds respond in kind.
Slates and chalks recorded.
Rift valley footprints traced.
Bridged a divide.
Conversations ebb to silence.
Seen in their eyes.
