It’s hot

hot to trot

hot to the touch

feeling the heat

It’s a smoke hazard

It’s like, combustible there

sizzling

hot fuzz

when it all falls away

all that’s left

is the beauty

of empty space

and the luxury

of thin air

Walrus

Walrus

.

For Lis

.

Walrus once swam upstream

towards the apex, the pinnacle

of the high mountain

he spied from the cold stream

where muscular wild fish

spoke of bears

.

He swam the oceans of the Antarctic

where Leviathan creatures smiled

and waved

and strange huge birds

circled overhead

and recited poetry

.

He spoke to pelicans

who waited patiently in lagoons

in front of fish and chip shops

and he circled and sang with

elderly swimmers

doing laps in plastic hats

in winter

.

Walrus flew wildly and fearlessly once

over the lip of Killarney Glen waterfall

he saw the trees breathing

and he heard the rocks clapping

as he pirouetted skyward

towards the clouds floating

in the shape of a dreaming rabbit

.

my best friend

had a horse called Cindy

it lived in the backyard at Picnic Point

her Dad and Uncle ran a butcher shop

.

she told me, as a small child

she sat on the red carpet in the lounge room

and ate money

carefully licking one and two cent pieces

swallowing them one by one

her Mum would wait near the potty

for the coins to show up

.

this week, she missed the art gallery opening hours

found an op shop instead

got to the  dump after closing time

forgot to get petrol

lost her wallet

had cheese cake at the Austral cafe

.

my best friend

the wimple free, artist, vegetarian

coin swallower

will never entirely trust anyone

who can’t say the word fuck

with passion, gusto and conviction

I’m enamoured with

work’s first smell

of warm buttered toast

scrambled eggs

hot coffee

and kindness

The familiar constriction

of bang and violence

still surprises me

the downbeat of an airport drop off

In the emptiness that follows

I see through a corner of my eye

down the tunnel of warm milk

toast buttered to the edges

a fat, hot tear

I smell your absolute absence

.

Your Cousin’s borrowed memory

deserted, ruined Croft

rocky bay and black seals

the swirling, freezing North sea

Nova Scotia’s cold marble headstone

I feel the Gulf Stream rising in me

blood and longing

I hold this serpentine stone flat in my hand

and see you flicker

in my Son’s eyes

Lamington World Heritage

For Mackie

.

Shine the lights on

the silver dollar tree

on that night

on that bend

in my car

the silver dollar tree

.

Standing out like a beacon

on my way home

a transition point

from my left to my right brain

way of seeing

after a PM shift

.

In my Nursie shoes

swish swish

slippy slap

in the halls

of a Nursing home

feeling contained

.

Silver Dollar Tree

I’m looking for you

every night on my way home now

looking for you shining

like a beacon

like a shining light
