destination Belanglo

 

responding to Tug’s

 

the Belanglo joke: coming through the forest at dusk, the hitchhiker says to Ivan, ‘it’s getting dark and scary in here’. Ivan replies, ’You’re scared? I’m the one who has to walk back on my own’

 

it’s always coincidence brings us

atoms to the cell

moments pile

 

the girl in the boot on the highway    

the narrow escape of her friends

 

have to imagine thrust and parry

the bundling in

 

and that these people were, not of their nature, newsworthy

 

some will say good as she got

 

warrant outstanding in a twist (interstate)

was this an over-zealous citizen’s arrest?

a knife for compliance from the dream kitchen

 

so many known unknowns here

and so on, vice versa

 

narrow, lucky

dizzy in the dark, forced

minus meds in there

 

though bloody and still bleeding

could poke out a tail light

wave a truck down

 

would no news have been good for them?

had she gone quiet?

was it all screaming?

 

so many questions the courts are for

and can have no doubt this was justice

lurid albeit

 

once were like sisters

and some sisters are

merely acquainted

but you cross a line

 

motives still under investigation

 

we do know

it was her own car
