Duality

gilded cage of natural beauty
Edge of the world
Edge of reason
next to nothing
fresh air, stale minds
provinciality
Have you ever left this place
South Arm
isolation
go far away
then go further
to an isolated country
an isolated island
an isolated country town
then keep driving
They say it takes seven hours
for a wind in Antarctica
to reach this place
in other ways
plain out of reach
but beautiful
the bars are breathtaking
the people kind
but stultifying
there’s nothing to buy
so you hoard your money
for trips away
My baby was born
in Tasmania
like me
the legacy
of this great conversation starter
everyone’s intrigued
unless they’re Tasmanian
Tasmanians
aren’t easily impressed
that’s why we’re here
to take this stunning place
for granted
to never leave
to chop down trees
make babies
It’s winter in Tasmania
home with my son
alone
the days are long
the days are dark
but gilded
