We Call Him Tommy
We Call Him “Tommy”

He lives most out of doors
I wondered if they kick him out
Because he loudly snores

He would...

illegal cargo of tax-free merchandise,
and plenty boxed liquor of trouble
Leather clad tattooed dirty violet blonde
riding shotgun,
with a Rambo knife hugging her thigh
In the cab backseat
sit two mountain men beastie boys
strapped...

I'd rather be inside doing the baking
Than the one being baked outside in the sun.

As my Dad ran away when I was only two.
Though my Mum taught me how to...

Possum in a Tree Holllow
Near the creek, there’s old dead tree 
We never had climbed before

Not knowing what was in store

He climbed up to the first big fork
Sat in the crotch of the tree...

Lost sheep of Babylon, not God’s doves,

Her story begins in the womb,
Where love maternal is in bloom,
Then paternal love springs forth,

Nature's Whispering Trees
The towering pine were poised
at the edge of the forest, standing
in all their majesty,
arms locked, heads touching,
speaking in whispers.
They exchanged secrets the wind

So began the saga of the woodlands and
man's intrusion with ax...

The light shines on the knife like a spotlight

This pain feels amazing while I bleed...

They keep shooting for the stars

Up to the raised bed in front of the school.

With so much activity at the entrance.
