Banksia cone in bloom, Fitzgerald NP, WA



Banksia spinulosa

A bronzen weapon
smelling of honey
covered in hairpins
as if it lay on the table
after the ball.

In the Blue Mountains
it edges the path where we walk
its fruit and many-mouthed maks
with seeds as tonus.

So hard for Banks to send home
in a pot.

Strange as the mammals he found
and as hard to name too,
wild like the land,
as difficult as a tune to describe.

Imagine in an abandoned mythe
Eve handig Adam this fruit
that yawns with the mouth of hell
