Words with friends
I smell a word generator
Silence with friends

For Bear*

May the grass be sweet
And the riders not too fat
In horsey heaven

Cathy Dineen

*my favourite riding school horse, died at the ripe old age of 27.
Fearless but caring, he will be missed.

reach for my empty
pocket like a phantom limb
a wallet thieved

preface to mission
at some point I'd like pie
calibrate my needs

Ice cream disaster
An oil spill of French Vanilla
No complaints from cat

Friday Carlton rush
Kenton seeks island refuge
Nearly run over

Saturday inspects
Windows to domestic bliss
Will my bid suffice?

Leaves shiver in the
cold winter wind.  The ghost gum’s
bark strips as night falls.

Natalie Au
Unpicked in the night
Dangling full and liquid sweet
Ripe blood orange moon.

Kenton Miller
this foggy morning
i wear your music to work
the words, the way home

the pull and the push
love me, love it all away
Friday night full moon

The Page Family Grave – Birdsville Track

This quiet home; a
Small and poignant warning to
Arrogant tourists.

the headline read:
public servant perspires
midday G & T

three day old cupcake
stretching out celebration
death by stale icing

rainy evening
while stuck in heavy traffic
a tooth aches
