my street gets a haircut

1 February 2018

my street is a Gemini
& tears itself up every night

#

my street decides against
the Westgate

gets cocky
drives stick up the Hume

#

my street avoids metaphor

#

my street calls the council
every morning & complains about
the colour of wheelie bins

#

my street auditioned for the part
of Ramsey Street in Neighbours

#

my street never texts me back

#

my street remembers
when the dogs won the flag in 1954

my street went to the pub
& bought everyone a round

#

my street bats fourth
bowls off-spin

#

my street keeps a journal

#

my street has worn the same pair of jeans
every day for 27 years

#

my street goes cruising in the park

#

my street watches number 45
sell for over a million

checks Pam out one last time
as she packs her station wagon

#

my street rides a motorbike

has a kind of ‘bad boy’ thing going on

#

my street is divided
on zoning permits

#

the wind rips through my street
these days

I see it walking home
arms full of groceries

#

my street sticks its head over the fence
asks for a hand w the garden

afterwards we share a beer
listen to the footy on the radio

#

my street gets nostalgic
looking over old photos

spends the last night of
August on the porch

#

I call my street in from the kitchen
