P1 Licence

1 February 2018

just past the houses on Avondale Road
into the paddocks
where the speed zone graduates to eighty
and the road can finally inhale
no longer smothered by the Colourbond corset
 
the black memories appear
 
sacred lines etched across gravel skin
late-night initiations
for the new houses on their subdivided march
whose windows cannot decipher
the markings
or their place
in the shifting
personal geography
 
from a distance
the rubber typography resembles
messy well wishes
bleeding onto the shoulder
of a Year 12 uniform
or the shaking words
you struggle to write
in sympathy cards
 
as the curtain closes on the farmland
and the bulldozers
carry it away
