"It's about geography" Blossoms "It's about economy" Birds "It's about public attitude" Tree branches "It's about culture" The skeleton of a decomposing fox "It's about politics, a combination
of things led by science" Ripples in the water.

About the poem This poem was developed through the deconstruction of a recent speech by Sian Griffiths, co-chair of Hong Kong government SARS inquiry, about the easing of lockdown, on BBC Breakfast, 28/4/20; together with things I saw from the window of our boat, to bring to light the paradoxes of our world and nature. It's about seeing contrasts, and in between those spaces finding poetry.
