The world goes back to normal
In Five Dock.
Boy racers navigate dropped Micro cars over traffic calming devices
Short buzzing exhortations of gearbox freedom
As they GTA on their way to maccas
Rising and falling between speed humps.
It’s these little signs of the pre pandemic age
Like the return of a cheerful insect
As Australia orders Uber eats, contemplating the return of the footy
And perhaps take a small shudder at thinking of what is outside the distant fortress of our shores.
Anywhere except Kiwi cos they’re cool. Chert cuz.
