left at 6 this morning
to burble along Bell st
swerved at the Tulla fwy
along Moonee Ponds Ck path
dodging under pylons and overpasses
out to Docklands
which is like the set of the Truman Show
they even have a wall that is the boundary of their world.
beyond this you can see what used to be.
and some tiny signs of life —
a pair of robins resting on a beam
which is more than can be said for the
with the giant screen broadcasting
sanity was restored with coffee under a tree
next to a ramshackle
but sufficiently groovy café in st kilda
where owls guarded my bike.
