Nature strip

country
shaped like argument

bound with fish skin, velvet, brass
propped on CRT TV

loud with shopping trolley kids
            look she’s staring at me

holding stormwater drain span
along all its distances

distances the trolley travels
with a single push

holding office building
            what’s on for the weekend, peeps? 

thick with wet cement promise
hot garden hose knot

high-vis boys in fashion ute
            put your helmet on! SLUT! 

country
shaped like question

low-res pic of Jupiter
anything about the universe I’m gone 

thick with lost budgies
high dwell-time outdoor space

holding old New Yorker calendar
            how was the weekend, peeps?

distances the baby travels
with a solid push

holding partitioning systems
along all its cubicles

loud with Sharpie love advice
            ENGAGE YOUR FLUX CAPACITOR

bound with zeroes, gold pens, wax
propped in vacant block

shaped like argument
country
