18 November 2008



standing together in a crowded QR train
with a brand new hat bought at the EKKA
hardly equates to consuming intimacy 

yet when we got seats at Caboolture
you rested your head on my shoulder
and slept easily – 

filling me 
with that sweetness which glows

shy glances from the ear-phoned lass
with braces on her teeth
confirmed she agreed
