Remove your projected intimidations & smolder with unidentified detachment. The song of wilted growth. The dance of prosperous phosphorus & dazzling photosynthesis. Pie eye’s prying open pea husks. Green grocer femininity could contend; though slight anxiety was converted to ball throw. Earplug vexation. Or Colin from the counter.
‘Do you like my new bag?’, holds up plastic bag full of stuff
‘well yes, actually, I have one just like it at home’
‘oh, that’s such a coincidence, Colin was it?’, holding back an ocean of relevant cackles
‘yes, infact I also have this one in my wallet, with my pills in it’
‘ah, I hope you eat them in front of everyone really slowly & shout my drugs’
‘yes, yes I do actually’
As her head tilted away to view the outside remnants of sunlight, she could feel that Colin was conjuring, to the best of his ability, something, anything to continue conversation. There was a twinkle in his eye; a shock. A pupil bathing in philosophic grandeur. A tounge fond yet forbearing. Do people actually talk to one another these days? The behind counter lady, teetering on the brink of a ‘printer just died’ episode.
‘a beautiful day outside’, Colin’s chosen sentence after long debilitation
‘lets all take a deep breath shall we’
Taking initiative towards a moment of debrief via lung mass. Giving gifts of carbon dioxide to emerald counterparts in return of life supporting O.
Just as an example of my perplexed spelling & written language incomprehensibility. I proudly present, the most gorgeously misspelt word of the day. Inishative. For what felt like the longest word ponder this side of two thousand fifteen, I could not for whatever reason, visualize this words ‘real’ skin. Of course I made myself a badge, to wear all day long.
The above photograph is not Colin. He is named Manu. We met on the road. Of course communication was smooth sailing given he did indeed, share the name of ‘my’ feathered husband. Most mornings we spoke life & read Michael Leunig books. He installed his own unconventional van fireplace, was a favourite amongst the law & grew tomato plants alongside a selection of herbs. He was eminent about purchasing a pet duck with his next welfare check.
