#MilitantFactionsQuotes 60:

How to sketch a portrait of Broome? Take a palette containing some copper reds, some luminous blues, a few brown sticks and green palm leaves, smudge them across an achingly vivid raw rock on the edge of this island continent: don’t forget that unnatural yellow, the sun here shapeless, omnipresent as we slog round empty fly-blown streets, shutters down, cafes closed, looking for food for our protesting children.

-From "The Boab Sentinels", first published @ 3:AM Magazine (2008), and one of the stories in Mark Piggott's fiction/non-fiction collection "Militant Factions" available in paperback or Kindle from Amazon.
