Yellow Moon: Junicho
 

yellow moon…
corroboree frogs
gather at the pond
lorin
scents of ginger
disguise the old dog
barbara
taiko drums,
jazz messengers
playing it fast
willie
from your handbag
the click-clack of shells
ashley
tulips, a robin,
my interest
reawakened
joseph
a slice of courgette
on his tongue
john
little bones
in hewn shale…
hush at evening
ashley
winter sun
strikes the wollemi pine
lorin
all tools down,
the shearers' revolt
at the station
barbara
pimps, hustlers
new arrivals each day
willie
lines of washing
pinned and pegged
in a perfect vee
john
a drunken kiss
the sea, the stars, revolve
joseph
