Project Description

About the Painting

Stripes of a tiger
Away from the tiger.

A kangaroo’s gait
Without a kangaroo’s legs.

A wolf’s appetite
Without a pack.

An opossum’s posture
Away from the Americas.

A marsupial’s pouch
Without God’s grace!

Pacing up and down
The cage of clowns
A Tasmanian tiger awaits
The leap of extinction.

Man will weep salt
Where once he exhaled saltpeter.
Howl pierced by the rifle-shot,
Like a star crashing into the moon.

The darkness of new wilderness
Brought not the songs of bonfire,
But the fear of tamed convicts
And their silhouettes of cancerous sheep.
