Driving and Waiting

selling the house and moving interstate leads to many delays

Action at a distance is magic...

A morning of last minute
Tedious back forth rushing.

Pained the warriors of Madagascar
Will not eat hedgehog, fear of timidity
Being swallowed so transforming arms.
Nor any that died fighting or was speared.

Croaking frogs sing - jealous husbands kill wives
Innocent. With only a knotty tree witness.

On the road - waiting
Magpies sing warble the second sun rise.
Cloudy and rainy - gray cloud rainy.
Endurance Place. Ashkanasy jogging
McDonald more cop lands. Last chance laughing.
Bright yellow flowering artery side.

Dead magpie. Three pigeons. Telephone wire.
Lines of road work or digital spirit levels,
More beeping trucks banking up. Fresh hill of
Cantered trees. Red wine bottle brush humming
Yellow and black fine haired social insect.

Industrial protective films. Sol dies.
Pink belly winged birds cross dual carriageway.
Far off wind turbines spin on far off hill.

Redwood left sheep sharp station creek run
Mount hoarding house agony ponds
Pebbly beach.

Around about midnight piss down rain storm.
First day night at the bench hours. Buckets
Of tears slashing the keys lashing all things.
Fleshy frightening and tumble foundlings.
Cold coffee left out cause twitchy bites
Of buzzing small insects. Dawn breach rising.

Too much rain for a rhythm falling
Too much noise to hear. They called to join.
Too much rain splashing and slashing wind
Too much noise to make a melody.
Blood sucking insects they swell and next feed.
Too strong a storm for a rhythm to emerge.
They called her over. And now crest fallen,
Tear welling, her panties around her ankles,
The older girls laugh at the cruel joke sprung.

School stream school - nearly one in the morning.
Weapons drawn? Will this knight ever end?

Tensions of twisty mist tissues swirling
Around abort the saddle bank maintain.
Strange matrix of land and water, rivulets
And tuft of grass. Dead turtle the roadside.
