First Light

First light

Picaninny dawn. Night stretches and
yawns into amber. Two kangaroos are
foraging on the banks of the Barcoo.

Light slips liquid over timber
awnings, and shopfronts staring
blind with quiescent eyes.

Day-fingers glow nascent over outback
dust. The streets are winding themselves
closer around the bottle trees.
