home via Braidwood

over Gillamatong
the grey breeze 
takes on a dab of buttermilk

between fence strands
paddocks are floating
trees, dead and alive, 

soak their feet
in granite pools
and the frogs let loose

a split hose of burping
your child crouches 
vomit in the grass

little birds twitter patter
you can see the rain 
cloud anglers, their

lines scratch the horizon
no fish here
but the cramped car waits

two wet cheeks
