Cabramatta

Narrow streets as long as streams
Shared by a street vendor selling sugar cane tea,
A man running for his City Circle via Granville service,
An excited child unwrapping a Kinder SurpriseThe exotic smells linger as you stroll
Fresh fried onion in your pork roll
The fish monger filleting tonight’s dinner
The fruit market spruiking lychees $3 a kiloMost will remember the bad side of these streets
Drugs, gangs, a murder most cruel
It’s the little things that I will remember,
The sounds and smells that make me feel at home
