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
