Politics dressed up as the production of spores.
Olivia reads a poem written by herself and a friend, Marcus.
Then the other young poets of the Spark Youth Theatre respond to it.
It's witty and clever, and the conversation does not disappoint either. I loved interviewing these young poets.
Uploading this episode from a campsite in Goondiwindi, with the baby playing in the dirt, the preschooler sulking in the tent, and the birds scattering about the grass, I'm reflecting on this episode from the backdrop of the emaciated cows and bone-dry dirt that I saw yesterday.
The insight and awareness of these young people gives me hope.
