when the pair of wrens
came to sleep on the sill
for the first time
I lay awake
with worry

  in the yard with Mom
I mention my brother...
a train whistle
cuts short
the song of a robin

    flood markers
beside the bridge
submerged –
a great egret
sticks its neck out

dipped into blossoms
the honeyeater's curved beak
purple, gold, red
I share this thirst
for colour

  attracted to the blue dress
i try it on, take it off
        the hand of who
        i used to be
        took it from the rack
