       About leaving rural Australia

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    If living was lent out in butcher sheet pounds the weight of intent would be immeasurably high

    High, like a soaring plane skipping over coastline in a 400 mile per hour glance
    Running to another country while a stewardess serves you wine in a plastic cup

    Regret is for the weak
    Some old wives tale from a world before the Beatles. A war world.

    But there’s no war here just uncomfortable seats and a clean serviette
    Which helps to take your mind off the recycled air

    What do you intend? What do you intend? What great scheme have you laid at your fingertips?
    Some corporate feast to pick and choose from, secretaries in tight skirts and stiletto heels clicking over your bedroom hardwood?

    Leaving behind the dry earth with its arthritic and rusted branches
    An earth that needed you, a family that needed your help

    Your mind caught against the tops of skyscrapers, penthouse apartments, New York City boulevard success

    Leaving a sunburnt country high and dry in the wake of an unexplained departure
    An empty bed that sowed and reaped and nourished you, for what?

      this was alright but was a little weird of a theme for me, although it was a good read
    Im not much for real world poetry myself
    but you did a good job, keep writing
    and good luck
