Caps Turned Backward...
Caps Turned Backward...Cooks Hill.
Down the long causeways of pavement.
Passing in row the Federation housing.
Pastel colours rejuvenated after
The patchwork quilts of graffiti...
Picasso'd in phosphorus.
A sublime communique?
Trees upheaving the black bitumen
Their leaves falling.
Crisp crinklers undertow a walkers papacy.
The children on rollorboards wear
brightly coloured clothing.
Their caps turned backward.
Weave cross-stitch in the patterning air....
