Sometimes I just want a bathroom
that doesn’t have mould in it.
Small flowers need lots of water.
This river has no name, and neither do the two that split
from its left flank.
Chopping wood is much easier
if you cut along the grain.
I buy wattle from the florist, come home to find moths
pressed against glass. Why do all our vases go missing,
my hands shake when lighting fires.
When I put your coffin into the back of the car
it began to rain.
Water always knows when it is needed
and when it is not.
