things i'd love to own
when you fall in love with how someone puts words together you fall in love with the person too.

OnceStanding at the edge
of the desert
inside the stiff creases
of a Navajo-print dress
from the corner of your lips you
pull a few hairs
that the wind had scattered
when you breathed through your mouth,
tasting the air.
I ask you how far it is

on the tops of our heads,
like the small flames above the anointed
in religious paintings.

This was all ocean once.
Satisfied, I drink from a sun-baked
bottle and set it on

Jessica the Quite Beautiful, as our (beautiful) leader, organised a competition on the school oval: the boys would race. First prize? They would ‘get’ her. I remember the wording very well. It wasn’t that they would get to be her boyfriend or get a kiss. They would get Jessica the Quite Beautiful. What does this mean for Year Ones? I was second prize and Jessica the Not So Beautiful was third. The three of us sat on our wooden stumps, arranged in order from most to least beautiful, and eight little boys set out on t
