…recently laid to rest
It is 103 years to the day since Sarah Talent left England to travel via the Trans-Siberian railway to China. She was 64 years old and this was to be her first trip outside Europe.
On the first day I visited the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania, the fire alarm went off. Visitors were forced to congregate outside in the drizzle while the building was evacuated.
Kneeling now, fingers spread close to
The flames (a privileged position),
I raise the spectre of the TRG
While squeezing the juice
of half a lemon
into the stir fry,
I hear a man
What this city needs is
We’re lying in bed and she’s telling me about how she’s just arrived on an old steamboat at the trading post and it’s very hot and she’s wearing totally the wrong outfit.
