From A Revolutionary Calendar
from Floréal
Zoë Skoulding
21. Statice Sea Lavender

another world is possible!
                over salt marsh
neither sea nor land the wind
shimmers bluish on blush

22. Fritillaire Fritillary

banning is banned!
                purple and snake leather
head bowed to no-one
what rules is invisible
air a silent vowel

23. Bourrache Borage

                I can’t see anything from here
the day’s emergency has us
