Upper Harbour Highway (6.00 pm)

Tentacles of Destruction

Machines alone have realised that sleep is no longer permitted
– W. G. Sebald, Vertigo

Inconceivably melancholy
traffic lights
against the sky

You might be lucky
they might just go away

just at that moment
when the blue
turns black

ours was foaming
at least our dog gets plenty

a deeper blue
the evening
before you

there’s stuff that you can get
our daughter got a husky

fade in
Great Lash
the sea
