Chocolate water, home-thirsty travellers,
groaning engines, bouncing boats,
sprinting breeze, billowing shirts
pained buttocks, straightening backs,
checking gunboats, pointed guns,
throttled speed, surrendering hands;
higher, higher, even higher:

“Where to?” Where else but home?

Waving forests, ripening farms,
big, miming waves, dancing canoes,
curling creeks cuddled by loving creektowns,
orange lights cast on black skies;
the sun stayed up to welcome

sons from faraway lands.

“Sunset so many and so late?”
Ask the moonlight and discover imposter gas fires.
