Giggling Guano

Beneath cloudy, frigid skies outcrops of fertilised laughter glare knowingly from sneering seas; their steady retreat stained by the crooked smile of those who know the joke, has gone too far. We trace lines in the filth, dowsing for patterns in droppings; faces contorted to manic snarls. Monochromatic waves ripple …

Fanning the Flames

The sky is ablaze.   Waves of dirty yellows wash over the ground, as crimson smoke licks barren clouds that loiter jeeringly overhead.   Fuel litters the floor, its perilous potential scattered absently across the detritus; the cost of its appearance obscured by the multitude of our transactions.   Silhouettes …

Salting the Earth

Spat out in the aftershock of atoms that we forced apart; their separation strategized for the marriage of our consumptive convenience. Radioactive entrails that litter our collective consciousness, throbbing with the poisoned potential of a thousand artificial suns. We clutch at phosphorescent binbags, our tainted hands digging through ancient beds …

Testing the Age of Sharks

Ageless giants glide beneath the waves, their stunted snouts sagging coyly at the impertinence of our horology. Careless in its caducity, one swims too close to shore; shallow waters now shallow grave, with aged secrets ripe for reaping. Peeling back the skin to reveal rivulets of cartilage that glisten like …

Ancient Rings of Time

Giant clams lie settled atop distant mountain peaks; their arid husks supressing the brackish smell of ancient waves that once bathed them in their shallow, dampened beds.   Peeling back the layers with chemical precision, we read huddled rings like geological Tarots; tealeaves strained by Gaia’s aged sieve.   Calcified …

Moulded Galaxies

Across dank, shaded habitats of cosmic intent specks of light flicker into life. Emerging from chaos, filaments of matter weave their nets; unclassifiable structures that stretch across the emptiness as ethereal webs that glisten in the dewy dawn.   Barely trodden paths glow faintly in the dark; celestial causeways that …

The Black Giant’s Collapse

The Earth has set the sky ablaze with glorious hues of orange. Strombolian explosions spew incandescent blocks, emerging from the Throat of Fire with biblical intent as they race down fragile, bulging flanks.   An ancient scar starts to throb, its suppurating skin pulsating with intemperate rage as beneath its …

Footprints in the Himalayas

The crest above the grassy plains dominates the outlook; its raw-boned peaks threatening to pierce the very fabric of the sky, as beneath its jutting crown mislaid senses of distant lands lie buried beneath the snowpack:   The fabricated whispers of spinning jennies cast as muted echoes in the ice, …

Arctic Acoustics

At the top of the world we slowly cast our sonic nets beneath the waves, in search of the secrets that these soundscapes suppress. Spectrograms oscillate with aquatic effervescence, mimicking every muffled sigh that reverberates beneath pristine, crystal waters.   Dancing across the pixels, a medley of melodies slowly reveal …

An Entanglement of Whales

Basking in the tainted gloss of west coast rays, these once frigid waters overflow with sustenance, enticing anchovies to cavort along the coastlines; their corporeal writhing a carnal call to hungry, ancient giants.   Upstream, waves of heat weave blobs of warmth into toxic bouquets, their ghastly aromas leeching beneath …
