Sydney, New South Wales, You have returned me to the time of my life.
A forever-sized hug to this city and the people in it,
to Word Travels for booking this leg of the tour,
and especially Anne Marie, Pip, Lucky and Jacob,
my open-armed Dulwich Hill housemates
who gave me three weeks of home home home.
It is my last day in Sydney before flying to Brisbane in the morning
and I am not eager to pack.
Sydney, you’re 100% in my book. In all the books.
There are too many smilin’ moments to detail,
like seeing sunset from the shower;
or strollin’ up on that fig tree with Carlos Hornibrook,
and Gilgamesh holding a lion.
Gilgamesh holding a lion.
I cannot wait to be a writer again.
