Friday

  • plum or mustard straight-legged, vans, t shirt and jumper come hoodie, or perhaps a shirt. The eastern suburban teenage boy. Neither groomed or preening, more nonchalantly deliberate.
  • as I cycled to work I thought of what to write. It was epigrammatic, even epic. Whatever it was.
  • my father had to leave school at 13 and grade 6 was his highest educational achievement. My mother completed term 1 of the first year of high school before having to work.
