Wollombi – Berndt Sellheim

arriving sudden
down goanna tail curves

a stoneyard o shipwrecks
pearls n th trees

a chaingang o scarecorws
nourishing th sward

outdone by Sophie Jane.

Yengo to Wollombi
meeting o th waters.

Imagine, Uncle
th black silent feet

passing afore
th whiteblaze wind

th lake’s dull wax
th shining silver eyes

cattle n th rut
s iron turns t rust
