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’m fine
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.
