'Australian February'

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    February is the hottest month,
    breeding nothing but anaemic grass,
    struggling through earth shiny as a skull.
    The taste and feel of cool has melted
    like those memories that taunt a mind
    afraid of age. A carapace of sweat
    coats anyone who ventures out.
    We pant like dogs shrinking in the shade.
