Footy grand final

Melville Street.jpg

Throughout Saturday’s

match as Western

Bulldogs bested Sydney

Swans, traffic ghosted

Hobart and

across the hillside from our

AirBnB perch on Melville

Street, men’s cries

melded with birdsong,

attenuated by sluicing sets

of rain.

Through open windows

I trawled hopes, dashed

dreams funneled while

reading Tim

Winton’s Eyrie

chosen from Libby’s

sated shelves.
