Bondi Beach, Sydney

Follow me human,
and to freedom I’ll lead you—
off-grid, towards life.

Looms overhead

Smoke over Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra
Smoke over Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra

Coughing up shady,
as criminal in hiding,
looms, bush fire embers.


A few weeks ago, I wrote about the bush fires raging throughout Australia. This morning, Canberra woke up to heavy smoke wafting from fires around the state. It’s been a devastating day.
