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
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
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
once were like sisters
and some sisters are
but you cross a line
motives still under investigation
we do know
it was her own car
