5.The Town I Loved So Well: Images of Gawler SA. 'Morning Walk'

July 22, 2017

The South Para River flowing under the old disused railway bridge.


Morning Walk


I went out into the world

with a world draped around


my shoulders. Dark

misshapen, crooked


and monstrous. Full of wars

and rumours of wars.


I came back with a world

in my pocket.


Ready to tee off

the day.


About the size of a new

shiny golf ball



the dimples.
