In honour of today being World Poetry Day I thought I would share a little something I wrote for the now (in)famous QUT Z2 curlew.
(for the Z2 curlew)
I just like to stare at myself in the window
sometimes I want to scoop up every vulnerable creature that has ever wandered
and transport them to an alternate reality
I am a knight
with no armour
sometimes I want to make every baby in the room smile
I’m living in the future
according to my diary
sometimes I want to give everything I have to someone
who doesn’t want it
I am a curlew
with no call
sometimes I think my real self is trapped
inside my imagined self.
