Hump Day

Bad day go away
Let the rain fall
In someone else’s sunshine
Not mine!

Melbourne Winter

Falls sidestream
Glare and lazy sash-sway
Dotted cool, calm
Horns blare
Screeching slow-down
Taxi light delights
Shivering sidewalker
And chirpy nonchalant
Winter birds
Swoop through mist
And misery
Hello Winter!
Is it me you’re looking for?
Always creeping in the bones
Seeping through my clothes
Downplay your affection
Sodden scuffed
Forgotten umbrella.


Love is rabid
A blanket of unknowing
Strangles and suffocates
Heavy and heaving
Chest beating
Heart hurting
I’m too scared
My insides spill out
My tongue lolling
My eyes rolling
Bite down
Pain is subjective
In the text only
Derives this uncertainty
I’m so unsure
But so definitive
It hurts because it is real
Love is rabid
Nothing else matters
Love is rabid
You’ve bitten me hard.
