Sitting in trees
PollyReg

The Grafton City Morning
 1
is a journalist found
 2
unexplained and unexpected
 3
in a convenience store.
 4
 
 
The Aunt, an expert
 5
on photos
 6
and fruit, it is said  
 7
loitered
 8
in the isle of lychees
 9
and dreams.
 10
 
 
On my way out
 11
of town there was a crossing
 12
for cows
 13
and a misogynist joke
 14
bearing cavities and
 15
the brunt
 16
of a life hardly lived.
 17
 
 
This country has become
 18
a drought riddled man
 19
naked
 20
but for dread-locks
 21
and sitting in trees...
