near a surf lifesaving club
we pass spray bitten cliffs
dunes with low straggling scrub
a twisted survivor
pumice bark banksia
a suck of tap water - a rising head
confronting a pair of grim faced palms!
their "plastic" throat
red seeds in a grass skirt
beyond, thousands of palms in rainforest
Bangalow Palm in majestic defiance!
your toes in a skeletal dune
surrounded by weeds
and a spreading holiday town
