Note on the form: Germinations are a form invented by Natalie Linh Bolderston. Each stanza can be read from left to right, as well as within each triangle i.e. ‘only birds know / spring’s still stretching branches uncurling buds…’ as well as ‘only spring’s still not a pandemic’, ‘birds stretching branches in sight just’ etc.
