boing! boing! boing!
V thump! V thump!
a wallaby just passed me by…
drip drip drip. drip. drip drip drip. drip...
demented by that leaking kitchen tap
hum of computer
hum of fridge
hum of fan
hum of phobia
ticktock. ticktock. tictock...
Old Edwardian hours-behind clock
yohoo, yohoo, yohoo
wise owl marking time
grrr grrr grrr... dog's growling warns
there's pythons on the prowl
quoll's eerie screams terrify
cause shivers in the dark;
nightly, outside my bedroom's window
fruit bats scrunching on ripe peaches;
next day, comes loud excitable cackling-
those old chooks begun again to lay;
torrential rain with rhythm-
Rap Dogs on my metal roof
jogs memories of falling mists
on moving mountains of Dreamtime.
