Little Death

michael-porter-the-death-of-nature

We’ve been going at this for years
A steady delete
of anything that tells us what we are, a long
distaste for the blood warmth and bloom
of the creaturely: local
fauna and words and colour, all the shapes
of ritual and lust
surrendered where they fell, beneath a fog
of smut and grime and counting house
John Burnside

Painting: ‘The Death of Nature’ by Michael Porter.
