  • Ooh
    Dry dunes cater for jumping boys
    From the nape of her neck he made his descent
    They watched men hurl from rock to sea
    Like sternum to button, lined lip pinches in between

    Your foothills
    Your warm

    Iris swims quietly beside me
    Oh the leaves and larger weeds sway and stretch themselves beneath
    Blue dragonflies dart to and fro
    I tie my life to your balloon and let it go

    Your foothills
    Your warm

    Ooh Writer/s: Augustus Figaro Niso Unger-Hamilton, Joe Jerome Newman, Thomas Stuart Green
