The Log Splitter

The vice that must hide itself / And often is no vice at all
When I meditate / The kookaburras laugh.
I Shot a Wombat
He sat still, willing the end / A single shot (I am pleased I had practiced)
What seems like a beginning may be an end.

Hunting with Aboriginals
Last year Aboriginals took me to find a boomerang. Eventually, after hundreds of rejected trees, one was found buried deep within the corre…
