Kool notes, for you

By | 7 December 2004

i buy George Barker
on flinders street
and study the pink/blue cover
in the half-dark. but

thinking of you,
not the cover, &
then mixing them up,
regardless …

George is standing
or leaning
into the light, a fag
in hand,

not really smiling
or trying to be any-
thing but being 'him-

i'm reminded of you,
that natural cool.
i'd like to be like that.
like 'you'

'the you holding the letter,'
that's what you said,
George knows it,
i know it, & you

said it. melbourne is
terrific, lots of gardens & parks,
beautiful at night, & especially
i like the river.
