Brett Whitely “The Olgas”
what do we think
of this tiny 
testicular section
of the Olgas?

only that the desert 
is light 
garish with wanderlust

note the extrapolated blue
and shadows 
as maledictions
dug deep

hoops of ghost boulders
reveal apathetic clouds

and the birds watch
silent as the blooded stones

would you whistle?
surely intensity forbids

“The Olgas” (known now by their Aboriginal name Kata Tjuta) are a rock formation about 40km west of Uluru in the Northern Territory, Australia.
