ROCK AND ROLL

the first poem i wrote
was in a locked ward
of a mental hospital
in a state that i wasn’t born
or bred in
it was published in melbourne
six years later
and so began my short stint
as a poet
within the Melbourne Push
i stopped writing when
i moved to New Zealand
and took up sketching
and painting
i had my only exhibition
in The Boathouse
Rawene
Northland
Shortly afterwards
making pictures stopped
Moved back to Australia
and got into making gardens
and ponds
all this is established
now i crave to write a story
but i don’t know where to start
or stop
so i’ll just continue gardening
and housework
and sending emails
until something happens
to get me on a roll
