No Title ~ by Gary Crockett

hide the keys
suck on a ciggie
stereos buggered
sand in the speakers
go for a surf

chip paper tumbleweeds
sun heralds and seagulls
and funny pages
wrap around railings
ring pulls and dust

beer gut roof
bulging in the sun
pitted with dents
from unsprung occies
and hail stones

hot gust from carpark
wryly unsteadies
badly leant board
slides sideways
blue metal shatter

burnt duco beach
oxidised shorebreak
red vinyl ocean
blown chrome horizon
smeared windscreen sky

lifted from this place
