Protests

photo of the footpath at the botanical gardens with teh words, "Dump SANTOS" chalked on the ground
SANTOS is an Australian oil and gas company. Acronym for South Australia Northern Territory Oil Search. Climate activists ran this Dump SANTOS campaign during the Tour Down Under bicycle race in South Australia. SANTOS is the sole sponsor for the race.

Changing childhood joys:
activists chalking footpaths,
defy compliance.

Thriving

Trees send a message
colonising a light post—
they thrive despite us.

Stay

Waves don’t wash away,
all that lingers in my mind,
a shadow of doubt.

Clean

Lapping the shoreline,
ocean foam filters itself—
fur-licking kitten.

Protecting

Hiding in plain sight,
lodged in every street corner—
superheroes stand.
