It was 2:30pm when Jerry booked the flight, for 8pm that night. He did not know exactly what to pack, or who to expect, so he packed for all the above. In his dusty shed, the man stood erect, but gracefully like the dancer he was. Within his mouldy suitcase, lay three black jazz shoes, much too small for him enclosed within a plastic sleeve. The sleeve was not decorative, rather it provided insulation and a draught-free environment for the...

an empty plate

FREE WRITING

when did you forget me?
my mind – encapsulated with memories
with memories i cannot escape
and doors i can no longer enter.
 
i only have but one dream,
one desire which haunts the side of my bedroom closet.
so the women and the man,
the ones who take total ownership over this body,
they do not rest.
 
the air is thicker in geneva,
a little fatter,
a little more beautiful
a little less me,
and a little...

Northmead Grower's market

FREE WRITING

We’re sitting underneath the rotunda of Prince Alfred Park. You, with the auburn hair stay still. It is so often I forget that women like us are made to be invisible. You, with the iPhone 7, complain how your mother cannot afford that new house in Dural, how you are stuck in your Northmead townhouse. You, whose teeth are not moving, have light-years of conversation still spilling from your tongue. A waterfall that never stops. You ask me if I...

Marist Boys

FREE WRITING

When your school isn’t looking grab your bag. When your teacher isn’t looking, hide at the wrong bus stop. When your friends have left you, catch the wrong bus. Tap on. Hold tightly. Watch the Vietnamese couple in front of you make-out, their chins and noses clashing against one-another after every speed bump. They are lucky to have one another. Look out the window, contemplating when that boy on the 601 will notice you again. The one with the Parramatta...

22nd August, 2019
 
scratch your name into my back.
let the children come running.
panting in the distance.
 
today i am wearing my best skirt.
the one which is pale,
the one which is young.
the one in pastel pink
 
classroom interchanges,
it is half-past nine.
hiding in toilet stalls,
waiting for you to come.
this is where it begins 
 
tighten the lock behind you,
it is now nine thirty nine.
my ruffled shirt,

a love which forgets

FREE WRITING

is there a love which forgets?
a love, which
so often reminds me i am shallow,
a fragmented narrative structure.
a love which
is adored like broken wrists,
thick thighs
like winter’s sun.
 
a love which,
envelopes me in mango juice,
that is all too sweet,
but sticky.
remind yourself that i am only young.
that i am only young.
 
for this reason,
you must remember that there are narratives written about
this.
vignettes which stain the curtain...

I’ve always believed in second chances. Unfortunately for me, second chances have not always believed in me. In those moments, I sit, drooling, expecting to find resolutions and forgiveness crawling to me like children. Right now, it is pouring outside, and the familiar stench of my grandmother's cooking fills the air, enveloping me into a mush of warmness and grief. Today was supposed to be my birthday party, but today I spend it clustered behind television screens and newspaper wrappings....
