from Perth

My friend and poet, Andrew Burke, sent me this poem from Perth, maybe as a way of cheering me up after a re-e-eally crappy week.

Please, enjoy Andrew's poem.


Insomnia (descending poem)

up too early
I see the colours
of light changing
as dawn comes and goes

I know I'll collapse later
when the serious business
of day-life starts

just now
the white gum turning white

- Andrew Burke
