“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.”

Yankunytjatjara Love Poems by Ali Cobby Eckermann 

“I will show you a field of zebra finch Dreaming in the shadow of the

                        puli puli ochre

            when the soft blanket of language hums kinship and campfires

                        flavour windswept hair

 

            little girls stack single twigs on embers under tjamus skin of painted

                        love

            the dance of kalaya feathers will sweep the munda with your smile

 

            do not look at me in daylight; that gift comes in the night

            tomorrow I will show ngunytju our marriage proposal in my smile”

My dreams have wings. But not soaring eagle wings, more like the wings of a butterfly. Colorful and easily ripped off.”

“Heroin spread that soft blanket over everything. But once the blanket was ripped off, it took a layer of skin with it, leaving nothing but nerve ends screaming in the breeze.”
