Drifting non-aware shifting shock
When hush before the crowd around
Fall between the lines
Corner eyebrow tracks of red
Bare chest, shell necklace
Swearing "Mother-fucking cunt"
"Your mistress" and "your family"
Toddler ears - nothing said
Calm down, sit down, train delay
Kick "be gentle", baby gurgle
Driver crackle mobile phone
"Move to Cairns", "want go home"
Huddle in my corner, my mind, in rhythm,
Three dollars, no packed undies, Fifteen twenty-one.
Unnoticed ambulance hands of blue
