don’t you remember the drought and the dried
up moat? the unmoveable brumby stuck knee-
deep in the mud? they were probably going for
moss on the castle wall you lost your phone
somewhere on the moat-bed
we walked around the
whole thing the pelican
their diminished bill draped over the rockpile?
you calling your phone with my phone
are any bells ringing?
