'A Broken Cathedral' - Eva Poland (year 13)

Deep within the gut of this ancient continent

the plates of the earth rub together

like the shoulder blades of an enormous, scaly leviathan,

squeezing mountains up from the earth’s core

like the bursting whiteheads

on the faces of the skateboard warriors of that shaken city,

who feed hungrily on the ocean’s crust

as though they’ve never eaten before.

Here lies the broken cathedral that forms our heart,

within lie the new wolves, our new beasts;

the beasts that have inherited us.
