mutual suspicion
in this community

whitefella owned homes gated & locked
blackfella hired house magpie-guarded

sugared study afternoons
walks on dusk

scaling fences & stretching thick-grassed vacant lots
trespassing to find the ocean

waves eating activewear
sand lining lycra

our beaches are open
they are not places where bloodied mattresses burn

not in Aus, mate
bad things don’t happen here

through roads & gates
slip teatree shapes

on the way home a need to ask
if we feel free
