Curfew — August 4, 2020


parting one point five

among the lavender

a myna feather



five k ruled radius

behind a fence

frayed bird of paradise



mask-less men at work

the seven sides of a stop sign



a grey gum forks

electric wires

my muzzled breath



distant school bell sings

suitcase on the nature strip



in roller-blade knee pads

an old man paints



the broken lock

on a gate that swings

stage four curfew



eight pm

rings around the August moon



3rd August 2020, Melbourne
