Perth, WA – Part 3 of 3


i.
Your Catholic ways
may bring you closer to God
A wedge between us

ii.
Lost in Mandurah
A country town conspires
to entrap tourists

iii.
You, me, here, right now
Once upon a second life
Us in first person

iv.
Getting to know you
all over again – a place
we’ve never been

v.
Windmills win over
plastic flowers, live bouquets
Freo cemetery

Ian Row

Perth, WA – Part 2 of 3


i.
Norfolk Island pines
as Cottesloe as John Street's
eggs benedict

ii.
How do you explain
a lapse of eighteen years?
Life went on.

iii.
Long slow desire
The flesh is willing, unfolds
Old habits die hard

iv.
To get to LA
all her teddy bears must go
Melville car boot sale

v.
“This goes with your jeans….”
Her sales pitch is pitch perfect
A compliment paid

vi.
Busker
Xavier Rudd soundalike
Who are you?

Ian Row

Perth, WA – Part 1 of 3


i.
Going west; coming
back to where we started
a lifetime ago

ii.
A streetscape unchanged
Pizza Express, my old house
Points on my mind map

iii.
Day one, Friday night
Steve - my Air BNB host
Fish between friends

In the moment, sense
flees and enchantment enthralls.
Luminosity

New clock radio
Enigmatic Instructions
Another late start

James Von Sutekh
Dried flecks of cat food
Circling the rim of the cup
Oh - it's your oatmeal.

Spot Haiku 36

i.
Autumn rains
Soak into woollen jackets
Risotto tonight

Cathy Dineen

ii.
Angst as things collide,
In haste I may have bitten
More than I can chew.

James Fetherson

iii.
Scissor Sisters' new song
It's incredibly campy
Fantastically so

Simon Patience

iv.
killing me softly
with double stuffed Oreos
slowy and surely

Ian Row

v.
trip-trip tripping the
anesthetic fantastic
a sub-consc tourist

Dawn Mok

vi. Blame
You were reckless with
my heart. The damage you’ve done,
you thoughtless fugger.
