  1. my body marked

    with earthly stories

    ~

    a 3 year old runs

    under a farm fence

    almost rips an eye

    ~

    a hockey puck

    off the face

    a pass, a goal

    ~

    armour exposed

    falling to the ice

    an elbow explodes

    ~

    top speed

    a skate breaks

    a hand reaches the boards

    protecting the spine

    ~

    my stories

    my scars

    mine

  2. a long list

    of ideas mapping the body

    constellations

    rattled the loudest

    to mark the concept

    ~

    too funny

    hockey WAS my mom’s

    worst nightmare

    probably the same

    as your australian rugby

    • I think rugby is up there in a ‘preferably not list’ but so many sports are. Apart from cricket, thats just an excuse for patrons to drink and watch some well-paid bastards out in the full heat of an Australian summer doing not much at all. Look it up, its a snooze and yet a national treasure here, Im yet to understand why.
      Hockey I get, thats exciting!
