Opencast

Part of the Gaia series . . .

 

Ravaged Landscape

Photographic negative

Devoid of colour

Stark, hard, sharply cut

Hewed from rock

Carved screaming

Raped

Torn from bedded hills

Now white harsh craters

Fissures, cracks, splintering

Partially hidden

By dishonest earthworks

Masking

Gaia’s Pain.
