In ekphrastic form Jackson McCarthy revels in the procession of creatures revelling in Fiona Lee Graham’s ‘Nature’s Calling’.
Mahuika appears at the moment when desire is stifled in a new poem by Jackson McCarthy. Stray too far and you’ll freeze, come too close and you’ll get burned.
In a dream, you saw a way to survive, and you were filled with joy.
Help keep the lights on.
