The poets spoke tonight at Wild Words in Darwin.
The grey was peeled back, hope revived!
The energy from identification is intense. Blood knows blood,
Truth finds truth, life shines through!
I heard the very vow I took decades ago proclaimed back at me
Spoken by an unflinching warrior in the company of warriors
Am I revived? will air fill my lungs?
Colour returns to my eyes. I see, I hear, I feel.
