Imagine

When you’re scared you run away

When I’m scared I clarify

Imagine what we’d be

if we weren’t scared

Pieces

I am the in between one

a bridge between two others

I will gather all your pieces

when you thought them lost

painstakingly discover them

through long conversations

filled with hair stroking

kissed fingertips, tears

and all of my labour

and once I find all the parts

I’ll glue you back together

Make you see how perfect you are

how perfect you were already

perfect enough for you to thank me

and to float on to the next

and for me, tomorrow

there’ll be another almost-whole

to discover, collect and embrace

but what about my pieces?

Advance Australia Fair.

Australia has been an absolute cluster fuck of morals this year.

Our country has blood on it’s hands. The blood of those who sought safety at our very, very privileged doorstep – who we shipped away and turned our backs on.

For those who’ve come across the seas; we’ve boundless plains to share. 

Tomorrow we hear the opinions of those who chose to vote on whether same sex marriages should be acceptable in the eyes of the law.

In history’s page, let every stage, Advance Australia Fair. 

I am ashamed and I am deeply saddened. I am afraid. I don’t know who we are or what we stand for.

With courage, let us all combine to Advance Australia Fair. 

I’m sure I’m not alone. That’s something.
